Remote Deployment of WAR files with Tomcat
Last Updated on Sunday, 6 June 2010 Written by Chad Darby Sunday, 30 May 2010
This post will show you how to perform a remote deployment to Tomcat.
I am a big fan of remote deployment. During development, I normally have a remote dev server and remote QA server. At times, I need to deploy my web application to these remote servers. I find it easier to deploy my web app by simply invoking an Ant task. There are other options for remote deployment such as using the Tomcat admin web app or an IDE. However, I like the idea of simply checking out my code from version control (cvs or svn) and running an Ant task. No requirement to have the IDE installed. Also, this works well if the deployment is part of an automated process such as nightly builds.
Tomcat 7: Real Soon Now
Last Updated on Sunday, 6 June 2010 Written by Chad Darby Saturday, 29 May 2010
The new version of Tomcat 7 is coming real soon now. Tomcat 7 is aimed at supporting the new Servlet 3.0 spec. At the time of this writing Tomcat 7 is at “release candidate 2” status. Last weekend, I pulled down the source code from the Tomcat Subversion trunk. It was quick and easy to create a local build. I was then able to test out the new Servlet 3.0 features. Must say, that I’m pleased with the Tomcat 7 improvements and support for Servlet 3.0.
The folks over at MuleSoft gave a really nice write up of the new features.
Also, DZone interviewed Mark Thomas (Tomcat committer). Mark provides additional information on Tomcat 7.
I have to admit that it was a long wait for Tomcat 7, but looks like it was well worth it 🙂
