Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Stop and Start Tomcat Directly from Ant

This simple tip shows you how to stop and start the Tomcat server directly from an Ant script on the Windows system. Here are the two targets to do so:

<!-- start Tomcat target -->
<target name="startTomcat">
    <exec executable="bash" os="Windows">
        <arg value="../../bin/startup.bat"/>

<!-- stop Tomcat target -->
    <exec executable="bash" os="Windows">
        <arg value="../../bin/shutdown.bat"/>
Now, you can call the targets:

<antcall target="startTomcat" />
<antcall target="stopTomcat" />
