Eclipse: Error starting static Resources java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

Question!

I have a project called myproject2 in my Eclipse IDE. I have a Tomcat application server and I can add there the resource myproject2 (it is a Spring MVC project).

Now I closed the myproject2 in Eclipse, removed myproject2 from the Tomcat resources and do a fresh Subversion checkout with projectname: myproject3.

REstarting the IDE I want to set myproject3 to the Tomcat server so this should be deployed. But all what is available is myproject2 to choose. So I choose it. I can access http://localhost:8080/myproject2/ but I get this warning and serve in the console:

14.12.2010 11:43:11 org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig deployDescriptor

So what's wrong here? Why don't I have a myproject3 to choose what should be deployed in Tomcat?

Does anyone know?

Best Regards.

Issue Resolved!! Simply Delete your Server Instance and start with a new Server.



I searched a few days for it, but I did not find a solution. So I reinstalled everything and set it up from a new project.
