Shrirang Shirodkar joins Donovan Brown to discuss what’s new in App Service for Java developers. You’ll see how Java developers can build web apps for Linux without having to deal with custom Docker containers (i.e., how to use the Tomcat Docker containers provided out of the box). How to use the new deployment mechanism in Kudu – ‘wardeploy’ (for Linux and Windows both). You’ll learn what are the problems with existing deployment mechanisms and how wardeploy solves it.

I noticed the wardeploy wiki page mentions in known issues that deploying to web apps other than ROOT isn’t supported yet… but it appears in March 2018 that was implemented (kudu PR #2718).

In early June 2018 I tried using /api/wardeploy?name=myappname with my Azure app service but it didn’t appear to work yet (it deployed to ROOT as before.) When’s this wardeploy improvement coming along to Azure? It’d be super helpful in moving an existing WAR to app service with minimal change initially.
