Re: Deploying Tomcat in Java Web Start

I suppose it would be easier to build a Web Start Tomcat installer, which has to be signed to access the local hard disk.
But since Tomcat too usually tries to write to the local hard disk (log files, generated jsp code and classes), you'll have to sign your archives anyway.
Just build a single Tomcat jar, ask for an installation path and unpack Tomcat right there.
