I would like that Tomcat deployment and unpacking my war file, but it dont work.
I copy the war in the \webapps\ dir, but it dont update my application files.
- I created the context in the Server.xml to my appication.
- I am using jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24
Is there any form that Tomcat unpacking the war file and update the file ?
