Run war with tomcat in docker

I’ve followed these two post 1 & 2 and neither work. I’m currently building my tomcat with the below.

Build File

  • Why I can't rm docker image?
  • Developing Puppet locally using Vagrant + Docker

  • FROM tomcat:8.0
    COPY server/build/libs/server.war /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/server.war
    CMD ["", "run"]


    docker build -t my_server .
    docker run -it -rm -p 8080:8080

    When I go to http:localhost:8080 I see the manager home page but http:localhost:8080/server or http:localhost:8080/server/webapp/do not show up. My terminal tells me that my war is getting added, but nothing that says it’s expanded

    For removing the manager app, you need to put the following RUN command before you copy the WAR in DockerFile.

    RUN rm -rf /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/*

    The above command removes the default apps available in tomcat.

    Your application should be available at http:localhost:8080/server/

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
