how to run the war file in Apache Tomcat/8.5.59 THROUGH SPRING

  1. Copy the WAR file to the "webapps" directory of your Tomcat installation.
  2. Open a terminal or command prompt.
  3. Navigate to the "bin" directory of your Tomcat installation.
  4. Execute the following command to start Tomcat: ./ run (Linux/Mac) or catalina.bat run (Windows).
  5. Wait for Tomcat to start. You should see log messages indicating that the server has started.
  6. Open a web browser and navigate to http://localhost:8080 (or the appropriate port if you've configured a different one).
  7. You should see the Tomcat welcome page, indicating that Tomcat is up and running.
  8. To access your deployed Spring application, use the context path of your application. For example, if your WAR file is named "sample.war," and your application is named "sample," you can access it at http://localhost:8080/sample.
  9. Ensure that your Spring application initializes successfully without errors.

Note: Adjust the commands and paths based on your specific environment and configuration.
