I was trying to setup Apache Tomcat as a server on Eclipse and here is what I did.

  1. Installed Tomcat through homebrew: brew install tomcat.

  2. To view the directory of the brew package: brew ls tomcat

  3. Specify the path in Tomcat installation directory on eclipse: /usr/local/Cellar/tomcat/9.0.29/libexec
    (Note: When I tried /usr/local/Cellar/tomcat/9.0.29/ eclipse kept telling me Unknown version of Tomcat was specified.)
