Enabling SSL in Eclipse WTP

If you want to enable SSL in Eclipse Web Tools Project and you already have a server defined, you must delete and recreate the server. It makes a copy of the $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml at the creation time and does not update the file when you update the source configuration. Therefore, even if you enable SSL in your $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml, it won't be enabled in WTP. After recreating, everything works.

This behaviour is not desired, but that the way it still works, one year after a post in the Eclipse newsgroup about it.
