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

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 for you on port 8080.

You will log into the server via the CLI and deploy an application.

You will then deploy a second version of the application. It has different information on its index page that shows the new application has been launched to replace the original.

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