Steps related to deployment of any web application in server depends upon the server configuation. You need to find how to deploy any web application in specific server as all servers have different locations to deploy application.

Deployment is a process of installing application into server context.
Server Vendor specified checks are execute in deployment process.
Also some checks based on application type (According to specification).

Deployment steps are different as according to server type.
Running application means application is ready for its services.

It's different than "running the app" because a web application isn't simply run--it's run in the context of the container. A command-line Java application is run--it has no dependencies other than the JVM (and any external libraries it uses). A web application relies on the container to feed it requests, determine the application's context, and so on.

When you deploy a web application the container figures out how to route requests to the application, initializes the application, and so on.
