Building

Skip these instructions if you are only interested in running WebGoat.

WebGoat is built using eclipse WTP 1.5.x. Please read the instructions at Goodle code to build the WebGoat application.

Deploying the WAR file to an existing Tomcat server

Place the .war file in your Tomcat webapps directory (it will self extract). You'll need to resolve several issues that are outlined in the Webgoat FAQ.
