Eclipse 3.2 Tomcat5 Plugin issue (Suse 10.2)

I've read a ton of links on this issue but still can't solve this. I'm trying to deploy JPS's to Tomcat5 using eclipse 3.2 and the Sedeo Eclipse/Tomcat plug in (versio Beta v3.2 Beta 3) and having difficulty. Individually Tomcat runs fine with all the example JSP's in the tomcat5 base directory located
/usr/share/tomcat5/webapps/jsp-examples (minus the webapps dir)

My eclipse uses the default hidden director in my local home directory for projects. That dir is: /home/fjd/.eclipse

My question is what URL should I use for my browser to run the files in my ~fjd/.eclipse directory? Am I missing a link file or a config parameter?

The URL: http://localhost:8080/jsp-examples/JSPDemo.jsp works fine because I copied the JSPDemo.jsp file into the directory /usr/share/tomcat5/webapps/jsp-examples.

Any thoughts or help would be appreciated

Here is the solution to the eclipse tomcat integration problem I was experiencing. I had read the article in the URL a number of times but for whatever reason I was using a JRE and the integration requires a JDK. The article calls it out very explicitly, but I didn't notice the full JDK wasn't installed. That's was solution to problem 1. (and the entire JDK installed into /opt/jdk1.5.0_11) The Java 1.5 JDK I installed is at

A Great Article on Eclipse-Tomcat integration: The Power of Three - Eclipse, Tomcat, and Struts

Problem 2 solution:
I read a few other articles that said to blank out the parameter for tomcat home in the eclipse plug-in. Bad idea - it needs to be specified.
In Eclipse 3.2. Go to Window->Preferences then go to the Tomcat Section->Advanced and make sure tomcat base is set. Since I run Suse 10.2 mine is installed in /usr/share/tomcat5

Problem 3 Solution:
An easy way to update the Eclipse and plug-ins is within Eclipse itself (not Yast). In Eclipse - go to Help->Software updates and you can manage all the eclipse plug-ins from here. I hadn't realized that one.

If your reading this article - Hopefully this solution works for you as well.

Good luck,
