Mongrel is an Eclipse plugin for running Tomcat (including the ability to debug Tomcat applications, or Tomcat itself) from within Eclipse. This is basically the former Sysdeo Tomcat Launchner Plugin, with added support for Tomcat 7. As the Sysdeo plugin seems to be no longer supported (at least, I received no
response for several mails over the last years) and the original code was available under the BSD license, I grabbed the existing stuff and created an ASL 2.0 licensed project on SourceForge.net, which I intend to maintain, at least for my own
- Starting, stopping and restarting Tomcat upto 3.x-7.x
- Registering Tomcat process to Eclipse debugger
- Creating a WAR project (wizard can update server.xml file)
- Adding Java Projects to Tomcat classpath
- Setting Tomcat JVM parameters, classpath and bootclasspath
- Exporting a Tomcat project to a WAR File
- Successor of the Sysdeo Tomcat Launcher Plugin

After using the Sysdeo plugin for some time (and loving it to bits), i upgraded to 64 bit windows, and upgraded from Indigo to Juno, could not get sysdeo to work with Tomcat 7 at all.
Mongrel works great and I am glad you decided to keep it pretty much identical.
I salute you.

Great plugin--thanks for the Tomcat 7 support. All it needs now is keyboard bindings to start/stop and restart tomcat. Otherwise, it's straightforward; you point it to your Tomcat install, add any jvm options, and start it up.
