So got this project which worked just fine before the weekend (have other problems, but at least Tomcat launched). Now when I try to launch the Tomcat server it immediately gives the following error:
Server Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost failed to start.
However, I can start Tomcat just fine via Terminal, and this problem is occurring in Eclipse (Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers. Version: Juno Service Release 1
Build id: 20121004-1855)
I scoured several forums trying to find a solution but to no avail! Please help someone out in need.
To resolve this issue, you have to delete the
.snap file located in the directory:
After deleting this file, you could start Eclipse with no problem.
