I am just getting started on developing a website. All I have at the moment is a HTML page supported by a couple of CSS stylesheets.
Can I create a WAR file from the HTML and CSS pages? How do I deploy them on to a Tomcat server?
Here's my setup: I am on Ubuntu 9.10.
Now, Here's what I did.
< Context path="/myapp"
6.This xml is called the 'Deployment Descriptor' which Tomcat reads and automatically deploys your app named "myapp".
7.Now go to http://localhost:8080/myapp in your browser- the index.html gets picked up by tomcat and is shown.
I hope this helps!
