In previous versions of Transact, when placing a webapp .war file into the webapps folder and it will automatically be deployed. In 4.5, a service restart is required.

  1. Stop the Ephesoft server
  2. Navigate to Ephesoft->JavaAppServer->conf folder
  3. Open “server” (server.xml)
  4. Set autoDeploy=”false” to autoDeploy=”true”
  5. Start the Ephesoft server
