Thanks for your willingness to help.

I'm using Tomcat 8.0

>Why and how are you trying to "compile" it?
I choose Servers->Tomcat 8.0 server as localhost-config->Run

Now I'm playing with the configuration and I've got a bunch of new error 
messages. The day ahead is going to be full of fun [πŸ˜‰]

1. A link to Eclipse FAQ is on this page:

2. I would say: open "Servers" view (e.g. Window > Show View [>
Other...] > Servers),

double-click on a server and check the settings there.

You can also create a new fresh server configuration there and
configure it from scratch.

Path to server.xml in Tomcat can be configured with a system property,
but it is rarely used feature (if anybody is using it at all) and it
is unlikely that you did that.  (Documented on the System Properties
page in Configuration reference. You haven't mentioned the version of
Tomcat that you are using.)

Why and how are you trying to "compile" it?  Usual configuration for
Eclipse is to build it automatically (Project > Build Automatically in
menu). What did you mean, step by step?
