Subject Re: Updating Apache Tomcat to a current version
Date Fri, 10 Jun 2016 15:09:09 GMT
Ok, I'm totally new to Apache Tomcat; that's kind of all Greek to me.

When you say "drop a new webapp in a container", can you do that just by 
copying the WAR file from the current app into the new Tomcat folder? Or 
does a new WAR file need to be generated?
