Springsource Tool Suite Server Error

When you are using spring frame work for java web application development you must check out the development tool provided by VMware, which not only allows you debugging spring based application, but also comes with a web server tc Server.

The problem is when I tried to use the IDE on my windows 7 pc, I always get configuration corrupt or incomplete issue when starting the server,

The full error message is like :

Could not load the Tomcat server configuration at \Servers\VMware vFabric tc Server Developer Edition (runtime) v2.5 at localhost-config. The configuration may be corrupt or incomplete

Reason:

Could not load the Tomcat server configuration at \Servers\VMware vFabric tc Server Developer Edition (runtime) v2.5 at localhost-config. The configuration may be corrupt or incomplete

And screenshot is attached.

STS Server Error

STS Server Error

The problem about this issue in my case is sts.exe needs to be run AS ADMINISTRATOR, I guess you will have the same problem on vista, but not a problem for xp users.

Here are a few other issues that I have had with STS, but managed to find the solutions.
[Update]
Error :
Setting property ‘source’ to ‘org.eclipse.jst.jee.server:’ did not find a matching property.

Symptom:
Whenever running or debugging spring projects it went to 404 page straightway, while the sts console continue to process the compiling.

Solution:
It turns out that I have tomcat installed on my pc, when you visit http://localhost:8080/ it goes to tomcat page, while sts has tc Server built in, when I turned off tomcat, I can run and debug project in sts as expected. while sts tc server is started, http://localhost:8080 should give you vmware server page.
I searched the internet for the error, none has mentioned this issue, so I documented it here in case you might have the same issue.

Have fun.
