Apache Tomcat Server Plugin

The Apache Tomcat Plugins for RapidDeploy allow you to create, configure and manage Apache Tomcat instances. There are plugins for all current versions of Tomcat.


By using the RapidDeploy Tomcat plugins you can install Tomcat binaries either using tomcat installers for linux platforms or using Tomcat binaries downloaded from the Apache site.


The Tomcat plugins allow you configure the Tomcat installation, tailoring the installation to your requirements


These plugins allows you to deploy your war files to your Tomcat installations


Use these plugins to snapshot Tomcat installations so that you can compare snapshots over time to identify changes and configuration drift.



By default a new instance of RapidDeploy should come with the latest version of the plugins already installed. If you have a direct internet connection and need to update the plugins for any reason the easiest way to do this is via the Plugin Manager when you are logged into RapidDeploy.

Log in to RapidDeploy and go to:

System -> Plugin Manager -> Available Plugins Tab

If your RapidDeploy instance does not have an internet connection you can download the Tomcat plugins here


These plugins are shipped with the RapidDeploy installation by default.

A complete set of tasks and actions for the plugins is available within RapidDeploy when the plugins are installed using the Plugin Manager. The task help is contextual and provides information on the values and attributes required to configure these plugins.

Available Plugins:

  • Tomcat 7 (for Tomcat 7 and earlier versions)
  • Tomcat 8
  • Tomcat 9 (For Tomcat 9 and later versions)

Plugin Components:

  • The plugin adds tasks to the server orchestration task list to enable you create and manage Tomcat instances.
