I have a doubt on starting tomcat with maven.We won't give the tomcat installation path to maven, we just mention the tomcat manager URL.So how the maven will deploy and start the application with out knowing the tomcat installation directory path.is it invoking local tomcat? or somewhere in the maven repository? because i installed tomcat in the port 8099 and i have given the manager URL as http://localhost:8080/manager, but still it is working.
can anybody explain please?
Installing via directory copy is actually a "brute force" approach and it requires local filesystem access.
The Tomcat manager does a web-based install where the WAR is uploaded via an HTTPS file upload and Tomcat places it in a suitable deployment directory. Which is typically, although not always, TOMCAT_HOME/webapps.
