Question!

I am a newbie and I want to deploy a Spring project which I get via SVN to my Tomcat application server. I did a checkout in Eclipse (Subclipse) and so the project is located in my workspace.

I downloaded the 6.0.29 Tomcat server and extracted it to a directory. Then I create a new Tomcat server in the Server tab of Eclipse. I can start it and I see the Tomcat start page at hrttp://localhost:8080/

But how can I deploy the Spring application, so that it will run in my Tomcat server?

Here is a screenshot of my IDE and the Server settings:

Thanks a lot in advance for your hel and Best Regards.

Your project needs to be a Dynamic Web Project (or to be recognized as such) and I don't think that the one in your workspace currently is (you are supposed to import the content of trunk, not the directory above). Actually, I'd suggest to perform the checkout like this:

svn co https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-samples/mvc-basic/trunk/ mvc-basic

And then to import the mvc-basic directory inside Eclipse with Import... > General > Existing Project into Workspace.
