Subject Re: question on manager application

I'm not sure I understand your question. I deploy WAR files regularly to a
remote Tomcat4 and it's very easy:

1. Go to the Manager application in your remote Tomcat.
2. If there is already an old version of the servlet on your remote Tomcat,
remove the old version of the servlet using the Remove command that is on
the same line as the context name in the Applications table.
3. Use the "Upload a WAR file to install" section to install the new version
of the WAR file. Use the Browse button to find the WAR file on *your*
system, then click the Install button. It may take a few seconds for the
Install to complete, depending on the size of the WAR file but when it is
done, the Message area near the top of the Manager application will tell you
that the installation was successful (unless your WAR file has problems in
it; then you'll get an error message.)

Tomcat takes care of all the expanding of the WAR file for you if you do it
this way.
