War not working

In my Tomcat 4.1.27 local development container (on Windows XP) I cant seem to get any of my War files to deploy. War files did work in the past and now anytime I put a War file in the webapps directory and stop and start Tomcat the War file doesnt create the new webapp directory. The autoDeploy is set to true in the conf/server.xml. Please advise how I can get War file to work?

Hey Dan,

Do you see any exceptions on your Tomcat server? Did you check your log files? Both stdout log and localhostlog? Also check the Tomcat manager for the status of your wars, whether they are deployed..

Regards,
Rama Krishna.

Dan, you're running a very old version of Tomcat.
Have you considered upgrading?

I will be upgrading to Tomcat 5.5.16 or maybe Tomcat 6 in the summer.
I build alot of forms with databases and was wondering what to add to the newer Tomcat. I assume I should get JSTL and Struts?
