I'm trying to configure Tomcat with Eclipse Indigo, but the "Servers" view is missing. That being said, I had to follow this tutorial on how to configure Tomcat with Eclipse Indigo using plugins. The plugins work, but I would like to find out why the "Servers" view is missing in the first place.
Build id: M20110909-1335
Server version: Apache Tomcat/7.0.22
Server built: Sep 27 2011 09:40:50
Server number: 184.108.40.206
OS Name: Windows XP
OS Version: 5.1
JVM Version: 1.6.0_20-b02
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
And if it matters, this is the tutorial I was originally following.
Is it missing just from the menu maybe?
If you goto "Window > Show View > Other..." and then type Servers in the filter, does it show up?
Also make sure you downloaded the "Eclipse For Java EE Developers" package as I do not believe the "Eclipse for Java Developers" contains the Servers view.

I am using Luna. I have following following steps.
Not sure if it works for indigo or not. If not, you need to search for the URL for indigo in http://download.eclipse.org/releases.
as mentioned by maclema, get the plugin.
make sure to choose "Java perspective" -> in top right corner of Eclipse IDE
It's late but someone may get help with this...
There is a option to reset perspective and you can get all view as before.
First select the perspective you want to reset then use the window menu to find the "Reset Perspective" option.
window -> Perspective -> Reset Perspective
