Running the Spring Web Services Application

The easiest way to run the web service and see the log output is to run Tomcat not as a service but from Windows Explorer. To do this, locate the folder in which Tomcat is installed, and look for the file tomcat6.exe. On my system, this file is located in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\bin

To start Tomcat, just double-click the file tomcat6.exe. You should see program output similar to that in Listing 3. (I've deleted some additional log output just for simplicity.)

Listing 3 Log output from Tomcat starting up.

The Tomcat log output item of interest to us is the following line (shown in bold in Listing 3):

INFO: Deploying web application archive tutorial.war

This line indicates that Tomcat has deployed our web service successfully. Once Tomcat is up and running, you're ready to interact with the web service. You'll do this using SOAPUI, so let's look at this useful toolkit.
