Is it possible to launch the tomcat plugin using java code?
If yes, is there any documents that I can refer?

There is no documentation on using the plugin in Java code, sorry.

I tried to install the plugin on Eclipse Neon (4.6.2). In eclipse.ini I specified vm Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_31-b13) (/home/superx/tools/jdk1.8.0_31/jre/bin/java).
When trying to install the plugin I get the error.
Unable to read repository at http tomcatplugin.sf.net/update/plugins/net.sf.eclipse.tomcat_9.1.2.jar.
sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
On the console I saw the following log
org.eclipse.m2e.logback.configuration: Initializing logback
openjdk version "1.8.0_111"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 3.2.0) (suse-3.1-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.111-b14, mixed mode)
OpenJdk is needed by my Suse Leap 42.2 installation for LibreOffice, so I can't easily deinstall it.
What can I do?
Thanks for your help

unfortunately this seems to be an issue with the mirror network provided by Sourceforge. Currently it does not seem to be fixed in the near future. Therefore I can only suggest you to try and try again until it has worked. I have seen people getting a successful installation after 20 or more tries. Sorry for inconvenience.

I solved it by downloading the war, extractint it and installing form this local repository.

When a new project is created after the plugin is installed, the below error is popped up:
The selected wizard could not be started.
Plug-in "net.sf.eclipse.tomcat" was unable to instantiate class "net.sf.eclipse.tomcat.TomcatProjectCreationWizard".

I just tried to reproduce the issue with fresh Eclipse Neon installation, which worked like a charm. I guess it was something like a temp hickup in the sourceforge system.

Just out of curiosity, I was wondering if I can run this plugin(startup & shutdown tomcat) from the terminal?
Submitted by Markus Keunecke on Tue, 2016-04-26 04:51
No, noone has implemented a CLI to the tomcat plugin so far. I am not sure if there's a real need for it. If you like to investigate further on this you could post a ticket on sourceforge so we can discuss further there. You could also join us in our IRC channel on freenode: https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=tomcatplugin
