Hi Guys !!!
I have been following the below attached URL to deploy a web appln on a remote tomcat server.
URL:-
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.0-doc/manager-howto.html
The Manager Command used was as follows :
http://175.25.3.122:8080/manager/install?path=/bar&war=jar:http://localhost/VirDir/bar.war!/

Note:-
1) References to the word 'bar' means the name given to the war file. Also, the 'Context Path'
is also given the same name
2)'VirDir'is the Virtual Directory running on Personal Web Server having path c:\InetPub\wwwroot\VirDir\
However, executing the above command throws the below exception :
"Invalid application URL was specified "

Secondly, the "war file" that needs to be deployed. How should it be created ? Would it be sufficient to create the "war file" explicitly from the dos shell using the command : jar warfile.war .(Current & all sub-folders) or would it be necessary to use the deployment tool to create the war file. Since, the deployment tool creates 2 additional files on creation of a .war file.
What should be done ???
Thanks

1) You mean, the name given to the context to which you are deploying, right? It's not necessarily the name of the war file you are deploying.

2) Have you tried using the file: notation instead? You would need to ftp the file to the remote box first.
http://175.25.3.122:8080/manager/install?path=/bar&war=jar:file:/usr/local/upload/bar.war!/

By deploy tool, you mean the one that comes with JWSDP? (web services development pack?). I've deployed several apps on Tomcat using only command line jar tool.
