Tomcat 7: Where to put WAR files

Tomcat 7 no longer “explodes” .war files like it used to; however, all you need to do is drop them into the /webapps folder and Tomcat will handle the rest.

In my case, I installed Tomcat via Homebrew, so it’ll be in /usr/local/Cellar/tomcat7/7.0.70/libexec/webapps.
