Programatically Import a WAR file to my existing Tomcat


I need to programatically Import a WAR file to my existing Tomcat via Java as  a simple console application.

I try to use this but it didn't really work out.

Is there a way to do this simply?

You do know that 'importing a war' is actually nothing more than copying the war file to the apps directory? Work on that basis

and what about deploying that war file? And extracting it? Is there any fast way?

That IS deploying it. Tomcat will do any extraction that's necessary

Hi Cehj;

Thanks. I was extracting manually (right click on war and extracting with 7zip) under ROOT folder and tomcat was dealing it automatically without an issue.

So, what you say is that i shouldn't be extracting it?

You don't need to. Tomcat will do any extraction that's necessary
