I am using eclipse: 3.4.1 and tomcat 5.5.25.
I run the application on tomcat server created inside eclipse.
Until 3 days back I could sunccessfully use tomcat server inside eclipse but now I get following message
'Starting Tomcat v5.5 server at localhost' has encountered a problem
Server Tomcat v5.5 server at localhost was unable to start within 45 seconds. If the server requires more time, try increasing the timeout in the server editor.
Actually server has started and I could invoke the app between this server start and timeout period. But something in eclipse terminates the server. All this time before finally stopping I can see starting ... message.
I could make timeout period as unlimited but that makes things clumsy as very often I 'll get sth like "waiting for a process to finish". At this point eclipse will hang forever.
One strange thing is it all started happening when my MAC was shutoff for the weekend. On monday morning it started giving this issue.
Please know that following things I have already tried
1) new eclipse installation
2) installing different version of eclipse
3) new tomcat installation
4) installing different tomcat version
5) increasing timeout period
Also I am able to run tomcat in standalone mode. Only when I try to use it with eclipse, I get the problem.
It has really become a huge problem for me now.
Can somebody give any pointers to get rid of this issue please ?
Thanks in advance!!
