I need to make changes to an existing application (called CRM) so I created a new WAR file from the existing application (called testcrm.war). I want to make changes to this temp application first, so that I dont mess up the original one as they are still working on it. When I restart Tomcat it explodes the WAR file properly in the webapps directory, but does not add anything to work/standalone/localhost and therefore the application does not run and gives me a 404 error!
When I copy the files manually from the original CRM application in the work/standalone/localhost directory to my testcrm work/standalone/localhost directory, then the testcrm application works properly, but I cannot do this all the time as I am going to be making changes and need it to deploy properly.
Does anybody know why it is not deploying properly? Are there settings in server.xml that I need to change?
