Which one and why?

There is "Eclipse for Java EE developers" that includes support for
Tomcat (and other web servers) thanks to Web Tools project.

Read the Servlet specification (see links on the Specifications page
in Tomcat Wiki).

You would have to pack your application as war file and put it into
webapps folder of Tomcat.  Tomcat will notice it and "autodeploy"
(unpack) automatically.

It is possible to deploy a web application without packing, but that
would be more complicated.
