Hello and thanks for the help!

I'm a Newbe to ZK coming from GWT and I really like what I see w/ZK. The problem I am having is running Tomcat in Eclipse using the Tomcat Sysdeo plug in. The details of my configuration are:

- Eclipse Ganymede 3.4
- Tomcat 6.0
- Sysdeo Eclipse Tomcat Launcher v 3.2.1 (http://www.eclipsetotale.com/tomcatPlugin.html)

If I load the WAR of a valid sample app into Tomcat's webapps directory then start Tomcat outside Eclipse, when I invoke the URL for the site in the browser the application works fine. So outside of Eclipse the ZK application and Tomcat work great.

After stopping Tomcat I now use the Sysdeo Eclipse Tomcat Launcher to start Tomcat from with in Eclipse. I can see from the the eclise console window that Tomcat starts fine. I then set a breakpoint in my MainWindow ("public class MainWindow extends Window { ..."). When I invoke the (same) URL from the browser I get the following error:

Looks like I have a configuration or path error. Any suggestions?

Hi Bill,

Looks like it cannot load those jar files correctly. How did you make ZK application running on Eclipse?
Using Importing War file?
