Hello,
    First of all, the following questions came after I tried following the 
directions in 
http://netbeans.org/kb/docs/java/project-setup.html#existing-web-sources.
    How do I import the source code for a tomcat webapp into netbeans exactly 
as is, with no changes at all.  This means I want to keep the build.xml I am 
currently using, I want to keep the build directory I currently have, I want 
to keep the dist directory I currently have, etc.  I am just trying to 
correct and debug an existing Tomcat web application that is fully coded and 
implemented at my customers site.
   Please note that the Wizard for the above actions is pretty straight 
forward, but offers the following problems to accomplishing my goals.  The 
main problem is mentioned above, but here are all the problems in a simple 
list.  Any help would be much appreciated:
1.  Complains about the "build" directory being out there, forcing me to move 
it to "build.bak".
2.  Complains about the "dist" directory being out there, forcing me to move 
it to "dist.bak".
3.  Complains about the "build.xml" file being out there, forcing me to move 
it to "build.xml.bak".
4.  Won't let me choose "Tomcat" from the list of choices.  No matter what I 
do, only "Glassfish" is available.  Yes, my tomcat server is registered 
inside netbeans.  See attachments.

Thanks for any help you can give.

TB
