Instructions on how to deploy a Java WAR folder into Apache Tomcat

1. If Tomcat is running, stop it by pressing Ctrl-C in the Command Prompt. I would backup the old war file before proceeding. Replace the war/zip in your virtual machine’s C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps

2. Remove the old expanded old WAR’s folder. You could expand into a new folder with the new WAR file.

3. In order to retest cleanly, I would suggest removing the C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\work folder

4. Relaunch C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\bin\tomcat6.

Assume the name of a  guest virtual machine is Zeus, so in your host browser navigate to zeus:8080/webapp. This is case sensitive. If you run into problems still with your browser, delete the browser’s complete cache. I have tested all major browsers and it seems ok
