Upgrade to a newer version of Eclipse. I think the latest one is Luna.

Alternatively, install a copy of the Mongrel (formerly sysdeo) Tomcat plugin for Eclipse. It works better than that awful thing that comes in the Eclipse J2EE bundle anyway.

i have lot of projects built using eclipse keplon.

If i install new eclipse Luna does it allow me to use same eclipse keplon workspace and run those old projects without re importing? Please advise

You need to read the documentation at the Eclipse.org website for full details on upgrading.

Workspaces are not a problem, but if you have lots of plugins like I do, then that is usually a problem. I think that the Luna upgrade was better about that than previous releases, though. I don't recall having to re-define all my test database connections and version control logins like I did on some of the earlier versions.

You should backup your workspaces before upgrading. The newer eclipse version may alter things in it that could problems if you needed to revert to the Kepler version.

That's a bad link. Go to http://tomcat.apache.org. There should be a "download" section on the left sidebar.

Tomcat is usually distributed at a ZIP or gzipped Unix tarball. Installation consists of downloading, selecting a parent directory for the server and unzipping the downloaded archive into it.

You must then instruct Eclipse where that copy of Tomcat is using its Window/Preferences menu under the "Tomcat" topic. The versions of Tomcat that the Eclipse plugin are listed as choices. Because Tomcat's structure protocols can vary from one release to another, it is important that you select the version that corresponds to the version of Tomcat that you installed.
