I am running MyEclipse 2017 with the built-in tomcat 8.5 server.
I’d like to change the deployment location for my web apps.
I was able to change the directory where tomcat looks into when launching (using “Open launch configuration” and changing the launch arguments catalina.base and wtp.deploy), but not the directory where MyEclipse will deploy when clicking “Run as MyEclipse Server application” (which continues to be in <myhomedirectory>\Workspaces\MyEclipse 2017\.metadata\.me_tcat85\webapps)
All hints I found on the web point to opening the Tomcat overview panel and changing this in the “Server Locations” section – however, there is no such section on my screen (see attached screenshot). Can someone help me figure this out?
The additional settings to change the Tomcat deployment location are available when configuring an external Tomcat server. The embedded Tomcat server is for quickly deploying applications without any additional configuration so the option to change the deploy path is not available with it.
