hi Ranchers, First if this is not the right place for this question, please put it wherever you see apropriate.
Second, the question: I have finished developping an application usinf NetBeans IDE 5.0, Now I want to deploy it on Tomcat 5.5.17, can you please detail the steps I should follow and especially the directory structure I must have ? (I want to move everything to Tomcat, including Servlet source files).
The simplest way is to drop your webapp, (as a war file or a properly formed directory structure) into the webapps directory in Tomcat.
Does your IDE have a feature that packages your app for deployment?
If you want to try this with a pre-packaged war file, grab any of the wars on my site, http://simple.souther.us and drop them into your tomcat/webapps directory. Tomcat will unpack them and deploy them for you. At this point, you will have a working example of a properly packaged web app to use as a reference.

Ok. But I want, is still be able to modify my application in tomcat. I think I used the term "deploy" in the wrong place. Let's say I want to move from NetBeans to Tomcat.
