Trying to deploy flowable-rest.war

Hi! I’m new using Flowable and im following the flowable open source documentation. Getting Started · Flowable Open Source Documentation

Im not able to deploy the flowable-rest.war on my Tomcat 9 server. Its a fresh install.
When i try to run the war file this error is displayed (sorry the first part is in spanish):

FALLO - No se pudo arrancar la aplicación en trayectoria de contexto [/flowable-rest]
FALLO - Encontrada excepción [org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: Failed to start component [StandardEngine[Catalina].StandardHost[localhost].StandardContext[/flowable-rest]]]

Translation to english:
ERROR - Unable to start application in context path [/flowable-rest]
ERROR - Found exception [org.apache.catalina.LifecycleException: Failed to start component [StandardEngine[Catalina].StandardHost[localhost].StandardContext[/flowable-rest]]]

I think the error is the JAVA version, my version is the 1.8.0_342

Thank you!


isn’t there any other loggig that could explain the error?



I dont know, i dont have experience with Tomcat


you were able to get these 2 log lines somewhere… right?
Was that all that was logged?


Hi yvo,

Yes, thats all the logs that i can read in the Tomcat UI when i try to run the flowable-rest.war

Thank you

There should be more logs. Check the /logs folder of tomcat, it should contain all logs.
