How to deploy webapplication in Tomcat


I have setup Idea to run my webapp using tomcat however how do transfer it to the actual server where it is supposed to run after development?

am I supposed to just copy the exploded directory across or is there an automated way?

You need a development directory and a build directory. It is a lot easier to develop with an exploded directory and it is better to have the build directory separate instead of building into your development directory. The plugin takes care of everything else. It sets your web root to use your deployment directory. It is very easy.
