The default webapps are not included when launching via eclipse. When adding a tomcat server in eclipse, it creates a catalina_base folder (most often under $eclipse_workspace/.metadata/wst.server.core/tmp$number) with no applications by default.

Ive come into a strange problem using tomcat with one of our WAR file.The application works as a charm, but when using the manager to redeploy it, roughly one time out of two, the heap size explodes:

Please note that the _used_ heap does not - according to JVisualVM anyway. After that, everything hangs, and the tomcat stops responding, with CPU usage ranging from 60 to 100%. Also, this issue has been reproduced on several Tomcat version ranging from 7.0.32 to 8.0-RC5, and on several machines (all Windows though).

Could anyone direct me to the clues to look for?
