Well, configuring Tomcat for JBuilder was somewhat of a hassle, and,
despite following the instructions on the JBuilder support groups, I
really couldn't get it to work for me (I *am* waiting on a reply from
their support on it).  I've quoted the major problem I had with
Tomcat+JBE below:

Currently, I have tomcat installed on my workstation at
/usr/local/jakarta/tomcat.  I have the tomcat server already running. 
However, for development, I created my own copy of the tomcat dist in

Following your directions, I made a "tomcat" project, created a Tomcat
3.1 library which pointed to the jars in ~/tomcat/lib, and modified the
execute configuration of the project to use
org.apache.tomcat.startup.Tomcat as the entry point, with the VM
parameter of -Dtomcat.home=/users/claycle/tomcat.

I had two problems immediately.  The first was that despite the fact
that tomcat.home=/users/claycle/tomcat, tomcat reported several
