I had a general question about setting up my Tomcat development environment.

I believe to have Tomcat set up correctly and verified that I can run a Servlet.

Here are my CATALINA variables ...

I modified the sample HelloWorldExample servlet and verified that I can compile and run the servlet using the folowing URL.


Here are the servlet definitions as defined in my web.xml file ...

I have ANT set up so that when I execute the ant command, a build directory is created under the root netcomm directory which contains the $ROOT/netcomm/builds/WEB-INF/classes/com/ .... /HelloWorldExample.class file.

If I move the build WEB-INF application directory structure to the root application directory ($ROOT/netcomm/WEB-INF/classes/com/ .... /HelloWorldExample.class etc.), then everything works fine.

My question, is however, what is the best way to set up my development environment so that I can just type ant and have everything work without having to move directory etc. or restart tomcat server?

The documentation says something about either resetting CATALINA_BASE or using the Manager application ...

Can anyone advise regarding the correct way to set up a Tomcat development environment using ANT in the most efficient way possible?

I appreciate your time and consideration.
