Eclipse Mars :: Unable to add Tomcat 8 server

On occasion Eclipse might behave a bit weird while you try adding a new server (e.g. Apache Tomcat 8). "Next" button is disable while the only button visible is "Cancel".



To fix this issue, follow the below steps :

  • Navigate to the following path
          <workspace-directory>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings

  • Delete the following files
    • org.eclipse.wst.server.core.prefs
    • org.eclipse.jst.server.tomcat.core.prefs

  • Restart your Eclipse instance and hey presto, job done !!!
