Thanks in advance, Gerry I assume I need to shutdown Tomcat.
Then, is there a set of directories I should just replace to perform the update? Then do I just restart Tomcat to finalize the update?
Instructions to get Intelli J up and running with continuous deployment are below.
Sometimes there is a bit of lag for this to happen but Intelli J will tell you if it has updated on the bottom.
Below is a quick walk-through on how to set this up in Intelli J.
Unfortunately the community edition doesn’t support J2EE servers like tomcat so I the only suggestion I can give is to pick up a personal copy.
Note that Java 2 SDK 1.2 or above must be installed as the following describes how to install a certificate using keytool.
Before you install your SSL certificate you must download our root certificate bundle (repository.
After some quick searching and a couple random guesses I was able to get Intelli J doing constant updates to my JSP/JS/CSS files which greatly increased my development time.

It assumes that: a) the JARs in $CATALINA_HOME/bin haven't changed b) the names of the JARs in $CATALINA_HOME/lib haven't changed c) no configuration changes are required.
In case there are differences in configs between versions, adapt your conf using https://tomcat.apache.org/migration-85.html#Tomcat_8.5.x_configuration_file_differences I agree that separating the CATALINA_HOME from CATALINA_BASE is a much better setup, but if Tomcat was not set up like that already then for a minor upgrade this complicates the process.
The simplest way to upgrade is the one I documented.
