I am not able to run maven java web application project to the configured tomcat within eclipse ide.
Initially I could right click on the project and run it on tomcat s
I faced this issue recently in STS
After following below steps error disappeared .
I don't know if you solved your problem, but I had the exact same problem and could never fix it. Then I saved all my projects, deleted everything else, started Eclipse from 0 as if it had been just downloaded, re-installed plugins and started new projects copying my older projects' stuff. Yes, it took me like an hour and it's not an expert solution but sometimes it's better to just start over.
copy your project to the other location. go to eclipse and right click on Project and expand runAs. click maven install. if problem presists, remove the project and import it again.
When you try to run the project on the server using "Run on Server" (SA+X+R) option, eclipse returns the following message: The selection did not contain any resources that can run on a server.
On the navigation panel, click over the project for pop-up menu, properties, Project Facets, check: - Dynamic Web Module - Java It worked for me try this may be this is your problem
Maybe you sholud update two file in .settings folder in your web project: .settings/.jsdtscope
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <classpath> <classpathentry kind="src" path="src/main/WebContent"/> <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER"/> <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.launching.WebProject"> <attributes> <attribute name="hide" value="true"/> </attributes> </classpathentry> <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.launching.baseBrowserLibrary"/> <classpathentry kind="output" path=""/>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><project-modules id="moduleCoreId" project-version="1.5.0"> <wb-module deploy-name="Web"> <wb-resource deploy-path="/" source-path="/target/m2e-wtp/web-resources"/> <wb-resource deploy-path="/WEB-INF/classes" source-path="/src/main/java"/> <wb-resource deploy-path="/" source-path="/src/main/WebContent" tag="defaultRootSource"/> <wb-resource deploy-path="/WEB-INF/classes" source-path="/src/main/resources"/> <wb-resource deploy-path="/WEB-INF/classes" source-path="/src/test"/> <property name="java-output-path" value="/Web/build/classes"/> <property name="context-root" value="shequwang-web"/> </wb-module>
change the path="src/main/WebContent" value's as yours in the two files,then restart the IDE.After I done this,it was work well again.
