Repeat the Add JARs process again, but this time add the common-logging JAR file.
The complete list should look like this: Now that we have created our User Libraries we can add them to our Project.
All these components have fairly simple installation processes and quick and easy ways to validate that they are working properly.
Here are the steps we will follow in this post: 1 – Verify Tomcat 2 – Create a Dynamic Web Project in Eclipse 3 – Connect the DWP to Tomcat and test it 4 – Add Spring 3.0 and other required libraries 5 – Create a simple RESTful Controller 6 – Extend the RESTful Controller Verify that you can start Tomcat and connect to it via a browser. To do this on Windows -/bin directory and double-click on
Click the “Target runtime” selector and choose “Apache Tomcat v7.0”.
You should see the Tomcat server running in the CMD shut down and return to a command prompt.
In the next step we will setup our Dynamic Web Project and you will be able to run Tomcat from within eclipse.
The easiest way to do this is by adding Libraries to your project, but first we have to create those Libraries.
For our purposes we will create two User Libraries – one for Spring and another for Log4J.
