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

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

Why my choice Ubuntu is my choice to deploy on for C++ SWIG, Marketcetera, and QuantLib? Awesome

Why my choice Ubuntu is my choice to deploy on for C++ SWIG, Marketcetera, and QuantLib? Awesome

OK. I am really frustrated with this C++ SWIG package on Windows. I cannot handle the obsolete documents where you need to use SWIG within MINGW. It is very frustrating and backdated when it comes to running the latest required updated packages. Screw it. I feel I am now going to move to Linux.

Now the question becomes which flavour. I have thought about and pushed for Centos for quite a while. As many investment banks and hedge funds appear to use it, I also find it limiting on their repository when I decide to do yum install or updates. It is one of those back flashes to the 80s. I still feel it is worth knowing CentOS in order to stay in synch with what potential employers are looking for.
That brings me to my updated decision to deploy onto Ubuntu 10.04 desktop and server editions. Why? Well, first they are free. Ubuntu also is gaining some traction as it appears I saw a posting on Bloomberg which appears to legitimize versus Red Hat. Security also seems to be less of an issue as well.

The number one reason why I went with Ubuntu is that my productivity jumps through the roof. When I do my updates for dependencies, I just use the apt-get command to get the latest. Less hassles compared to Red Hat or Centos. Also, it is such a popular flavour of Linux you cannot go wrong.
As for C++ SWIG and Quantlib SWIG, it appears I have made a correct decision as I am blazing through my builds and compilations to move foward in deploying on Ubuntu. Also, I am very thankful I can deploy my Marketcetera on it as well.

If you are deciding which platform to use, I would strongly recommend you look at Ubuntu as potential. Not only is it free, it is mature, and has great third party support. It is becoming the new future in operating systems.
