The Apache Tomcat manager web application provides a convenient interface that lists deployed web applications.

To learn how to list deployed applications using the Apache Tomcat manager, follow these 5 steps:

  1. Start the Tomcat server.
  2. You'll need to create credentials to access the Tomcat manager. The instructions for setting up a user name and password were contained in Steps 2, 3, and 4 in the topic Click here to learn how to deploy a Web Application Using Apache Tomcat Manager (Linux). You will need to restart the Tomcat server after completing the steps in that topic.
  3. In the address area of your browser, type http://localhost:8080/manager/html and submit that address to the browser.
  4. You will be challenged for credentials. Provide the user name and password you specified in tomcat-users.xml (make sure to provide the correct spelling and case): Manager credentials Click OK
  5. The manager web page contains a list of the deployed web applications: Manager list deployed apps Note that each application has an associated set of buttons that allows you to start and stop the web application. In addition, you can reload the JAR files and classes, as well as undeploy the application (**Note: the undeploy operation will delete the WAR file and unpacked folder under the "webapps" folder or delete the context file under CATALINA_BASE/conf/Catalina/host_name, e.g., /var/lib/tomcat7/conf/Catalina/localhost).
