Subject Re: help needed: problems with eclipse, m2e and wst

I've always found WTP's generic container support to be too slow and
too limiting for me. Sysdeo's Tomcat launcher allows for more explicit
control of the classpath, google or see for more info.
run-jetty-run plugin is another good and simple choice.
