Basically I am working in my IDE(Websphere Studio App Developer) and I want to export my codebase into a .war file to my tomcat server. My question is
how do I deploy this war file to tomcat. From reading below(next paragraph, some reading material I found) it looks as if I can put the .war file in the /manager directory under the webapps
folder and walla my application will be built. Do I have to register the name of this war file in any of the tomcat congfig file(ie. server.xml)?
I assume tomcat knows how to build the project based upon the web.xml file contained within the war file?
If you package the application as a .war file, place the war file in the tomcat/webapps
directory and Tomcat will automatically expand the war file at startup ..."Tried this but it does not work". I also read
that to Deploy a new web application, on a specified context path, from a specified directory or WAR file pathname by putting the
.war file in the installed by default on context path /manager directory. "I have not tried this one yet. Will it work"
