Eclipse WTP – Deployment location of the local Tomcat

If you ever wondered where Eclipse WTP deploys your web application during development (if you use the local server option in Eclipse) you find the result of your deployment under:

Workspace-> .metadata -> .plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core\ and then tmp[number]\wtpwebapps\project name

Update for Eclipse 3.5 (wtpwebapps in the path seems to be new)

    Lars, terrible english and spelling, but fantastic info.

    ie.

    ‘If you ever woundered there Eclipse WTP does deployment your web application…’

    should probably read:

    ‘If you ever wondered where Eclipse WTP deploys your web application…’

    I’m new to web development and I’m currently using myEclipse 6.6. The copy function doesn’t set the copied project’s Context value correctly in the .metadata file but it does set the archive value correctly. Go figure.

    Your answer provided me with a means to fix my problem.

    Thanks.
