could some one tell me the steps of deploying simple jar and war file .. is it just copy the jar file into ../common/lib directory only or do we need do more that that?
also, the war file is it just upload it into webapps dir too?
thanks

That's pretty much it. Then you need to restart Tomcat. It won't dynamically load war or jar files that it doesn't know about when it first starts up. It only dynamically *reloads*. At least it didn't the last time I checked, perhaps 4.1.x addresses this.

I've just placed my war files under webapps dir and started the tomcat but it didn't unpacked the war file to create a new application. I've tried setting context, unpackedwar to true in server.xml. Any idea?
