Web development and general geekery
Thanks for the intro to Jenkins, Matt! For someone who's just getting familiar would you recommend the native installer for Windows or adding the WAR file to my local development server?
If you already have Tomcat or another servlet container installed I'd just drop the WAR onto that. The native Windows installer *may* (don't know; don't use Windows) install Tomcat as part of that process.
Since I have CF10 on my dev server it should be cool just to drop the WAR file there then, right? Thanks for the reply!
Nope, not if you're running CF 10's version of Tomcat. That version of Tomcat is hacked specifically for CF 10 and is not designed to run anything else. You *can* run CF 10 on plain vanilla Tomcat, but you *can't* run other stuff on the CF version of Tomcat.
Naturally. Looks like Jenkins will get the native installer on my dev server then. Today I want to shout a giant WTF at Adobe.
Cool -- let me know how it goes. Only issue you might have with CF 10 Tomcat and plain Tomcat both on the same box is potential port conflicts, but I'm not sure what ports CF 10 Tomcat runs on.
