While running Servlet using Tomcat 7 in Eclipse Helios, I kept on getting error, "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect". What is this due to? I even tried uninstalling and re-installing the apache tomcat 7 software, but the problem persists.
I have checked the home base settings for Tomcat in Eclipse. It's in C:\Program Files\Tomcat 7.0 and there was no extra slash at the end of it. Still, it's not working.
Or, someone please tell me how to check home base settings for tomcat in eclipse as I checked it by going in to Eclipse-->Window-->Preference-->Server-->Run Time Environment--> Clicked "Apache Tomcat", and then clicked on "Edit" to do further settings.

Please let me know if you need additional information from my side.
