Subject RE: AGAIN: How can you deploy an application onto a specific host?
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 22:19:21 GMT

I can only tell you how I do it Gents but I am not sure if its suitable. I 
have a NFS mount (Samba) which has my war but generall I dont jar it cause I 
can just use a file system with the same dir structure.


then I go to the host I want to deploy it on
and type 

somewebcontext being the  http://hosttodeployon/somewebcontext

also ant can do this for you automatically

Now the mount is over a number of machines so I can deploy and test over 
multiples. But if I want to upgrade a machine some where else I would use 
scp as the manager is not safe to have on a production enviroment (My 
paranoia not casting aspiritions (You say similar in your own docs Tomcat 
developers)) There is a attr in server.xml so that when somewebcontext.war 
is copied over it deploys over it again. Sorry cant find it now as I am at 

I realise what you may have been looking for was someway to upload the war 
through the manager but to do that I would just copy over the existing war.
