I am a newbie in tomcat. I have a project that contains multiple war files (more than 15). When I deploy these many war files and start tomcat application, it extracts folders for each war file sequentially (one by one), which considerably increases the downtime and time to deploy.

I guess there would be some way which can help to extract these many war files simultaneously and thereby reduce downtime and deployment time.

Please advise.


There is a startStopThreads on the Host element in server.xml which should do what you want.

From the documentation :

The number of threads this Host will use to start child Context elements in parallel.
