Dear All,
I know it's a dumb question, but i can't deploy WAR files. A friend of mine sent me the file to be used in TOMCAT 3.2. According to him, all i have to do is deploy it and the entire application he's built would run.
Can anybody help out. I'm confused. How do i use that file.
Please help.
P.s. I have tried reading it on SUN, and From Books. I'm still not getting it.

The Tomcat 3.2 docs explain deployment at
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-3.2-doc/appdev/deployment.html
For deploying a WAR file, they read


Copy the web application archive file into directory $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/. When Tomcat is started, it will automatically expand the web application
archive file into its unpacked form, and execute the application that way. This approach would typically be used to install an additional application,
provided by a third party vendor or by your internal development staff, into an existing Tomcat installation. NOTE - If you use this approach, and
wish to update your application later, you must both replace the web application archive file AND delete the expanded directory that Tomcat created,
and then restart Tomcat, in order to reflect your changes.


HTH,
Joe
