Error while updating war file in tomcat server

I have written a Java service application and after writing the code in eclipse and running it I copied the war file in the log folder of topcat-sever-topcat-logs but on checking with the Catalina.out file I cannot see the process as deployed?? Please help

This isn’t where you should be putting the WAR file. In tomcat you should be deploying your WAR file to the webapps folder.

where inside the webapps follder do I copy the war file

Just directly inside the webapps folder.
Tomcat will then automatically extract it when it starts running.

Hi @Niall
Thank you. I have done that and it’s working perfectly now.
