Hi
I'm developing a web app (with Tomcat) on my laptop running XP, the hosting provider I'm looking at runs tomcat on Linux. To deploy my app will it be a simple case of dropping the .war file onto the linux server or will I need to build on the linux box? I suspect it will be the later but any clarification would be helpful..
I've placed a similar post under TOMCAT but thought this might be a better place for a quick answer..
Thanks
Rodney

Provided your war file is "Pure Java" and doesn't make any Windows assumptions (such as case-insensitive file system, or CR/LF line endings) you should be able to just drop in the WAR regardles of operating system.
I've deployed an unchanged WAR on Windows 95, NT, 2000, XP, Linux, DEC Unix, Solaris and FreeBSD with no problems.
