Welcome to this hands-on lab, where we'll deploy an application on Tomcat via the CLI in a dynamic manner.

We are using Apache's Tomcat, a Java-based application platform built around deploying and managing Java Web Applications. The server provided in this lab environment is running Red Hat Enterprise 8 and has Tomcat 9 pre-installed for you. The Tomcat instance is available on port 8080.

You will log into the server via the CLI and deploy an application. You will then test whether the application automatically deployed by going to the application's web page.

Next you will deploy a second version of the application, which should also deploy automatically. You will test that by going to the application's web page, which should show the new version of the application.

Both of the applications will be provided in a folder on the Tomcat server for your use.
