I want to setup tomcat with eclipse. For that I require a plug-in. Does eclipse come with its own plug-ins or I have to use third party plug-ins only ?

Is there a specified list of third party plug-ins recommended by eclipse ? Where can I find these plug-ins ? Or do I have to find plug-ins on my own ?

Thanks

I dont think you need a plugin for this. You can install Tomcat separately and then use Add New Server to locate you Tomcat installation (You can find this easily if you are in a Java EE configuration on Eclipse).

Yes, you do need a plugin. I recommend the sysdeo plugin, as it allows full access to Tomcat's features.

However, there are Eclipse distros that are pre-bundled with other ways of running Tomcat, as well. The J2EE spins of Eclipse come with the WTP plugin, which can be used to launch, control, and debug in Tomcat, although it mangles the runtime enviroment in ways I find very annoying.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
