Use Tomcat as localhost server in HANA studio?

I have Apache Tomcat version 8.5.14 and SAP HANA studio version 2.2.9 installed on my PC. I have watched several videos showing how to configure Eclipse to use Tomcat as a local web server, which simplifies testing SAPUI5 apps. In HANA studio, however, when I go to Window->Preferences->Server->Runtime Environments, I do not see my installed Tomcat version listed. Under Apache Software Foundation, I see several "downloadable" options that say "Geronimo", but if I pick one I do not get the option to create a local server. Is there a way to get SAP HANA studio to recognize my Tomcat installation, so I can run applications on localhost:8080?

    I am answering my own question here - I had to install the JST Server Adapter and JST Server Adapter Extensions. Once I did that, I was able to see and use my installed Tomcat server in Eclipse. See link for further details, keeping in mind that the Tomcat server version in the link is older than the current version:
