Hi I am using Eclipse v.3.2.3. (Indigo Service Release 2) Build ID: 20120216-1857 to re-create a workspace that I have inherited from someone else.

the JAVA_HOME environment variable points to c:\jdk1.5

and the problem that I am having is that I cannot seem to find a suitable server for this age of a jdk.

(To make matters worse, the original Eclipse that was used by the prevoius developer was: Indigo Service Releasea 2 Build ID: 20120216-1857. )

I have tried to download Jakarta Tomcat, but it is out of date (out of life).

I also have looked into utilizing JBoss 4.2.2 but when I click on the wizard for adding a server, it does not point to this age of a server, it points to a newer server.

Any ideas? Right now I am installing the J2EE Preview at localhost to see if I can rebuild the edited servlets that I have edited.

Thanks,
Michele

So is Java 5.0 / JDK 1.5. Why not upgrade both?
If you can't upgrade then you will have to accept that you are stuck to older versions, not only of Tomcat but also of some libraries.

I fear that you've fallen into "IDE dependency". The fact is that it's all Java source, and would probably compile with a simple script.

If it's a jar, just put it where it's needed (as local as possible; and don't put it in the Tomcat libs unless you know it should be there.

All this said: Why are you using software that you don't know how to deploy?
