I'm a newbie to Tomcat so I appolgize if this is a dumb question. Need help setting up Tomcat (5.0.28) to run my application in exploded mode (maybe called development mode) so I don't have to recreate my War file each time a make a change to my application. Any help would be appreciated.

There is nothing special needed to do this. If you're using the standard install to learn then in the webapps directory there are several web app directories. Under each one there is a WEB-INF and so on. You can put your .war file at the webapps directory level or you can have an exploded war.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

If I wanted the exploded war file to be somewhere else, ie another directory, do I need to create a app.xml file that points to the new place?
