Setting up TomCat Server for web-application Deployment

Setting up TomCat Server for web-application Deployment

In this blog, we are going to learn how we can set up a tomcat server on the local or remote machines for web-application deployment.

To deploy files we need to use “Deploy Plugin”. This plugin takes a war/ear file and deploys that to a running remote application server or local machine at the end of a build. The list of currently supported containers include:

·         Tomcat 4.x/5.x/6.x/7.x and higher
·         JBoss 3.x/4.x
·         Glassfish 2.x/3.x

Below Steps we need to follow to first setup Tomcat Server on our local or Remote Machine:

1) Visit the Tomcat Page and install Tomcat as per your system configuration.

    2) Unzip Tomcat File, under Setup in a conf folder inside Server.xml we can update the default port for the tomcat server. Please Note by default tomcat server runs on Port 8080 but in this example, I have updated the port to 8181 since my Jenkins is already running on port 8080.

    3)In the Same Folder, inside tomcat-user.xml add one new user role or update any existing user with the below role.

   <user username="deployer" password="deployer" roles="manager-gui,manager-script,admin"/>

    4)To Start Tomcat, Inside Bin click on startup or to shutdown we can also use shutdown.

Tomcat Server is up and running on Port 8181
