Eclipse – Java Servlet deployment on tomcat eclipse – Need reference

eclipsetomcat7web-deployment

I may be confused or i'm doing the same mistakes since 2 days. Please correct me where i'm doing mistakes also i would like to refer proper documentation more specific to my problem.

  1. I created the Dynamic Web Project and added tomcat v7.0 as server in eclipse. when i tried to run server it gives an error.
    Project (right click) –> Run As –>Run on Server–> Tomcat v7.0 –> project name (configured) –> Finish.

Error: (servers tab)

Apr 30, 2012 4:19:20 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start
INFO: Server startup in 260 ms

Testing:
(i)
eclipse console shows
enter image description here

(ii)
http://localhost:8080/ — doesn't point to tomcat home page

(iii) Even startup batch file throws the same error

Best Solution

Just re-posting the answer from user384706.

Removed servlet.jar in the classpath. I just searched for servlet.jar and removed everything except from lib folder. Which helped me to get rid off this error :)
