How do I use Tomcat rather than built-in in Development mode


Code that I'm writing has to talk to a number of different servers and
I have test servers that replicate the production servers the code
will eventually interact with. Especially with regard to long term
maintenance, I would rather not have to change the various DB, LDAP,
etc pointers every time I move a copy into production. All the
pertinent pointers (URLs, etc) are stored as context parameters in
web.xml and with Tomcat in server.xml I can override the various of
the context parameters on my development station so I point to my test
servers and no changes would then be required when I move the code
into production.

So my question is: how do I configure GWT (the Eclipse plugin) to use
the locally installed Tomcat rather than the built-in server. Or is
there a better was to accomplish the above while still using the built-
in server?
