Does this .deb provide the init.d scripts to start/stop tomcat?

I need to install tomcat Version 9.0.35 and deploy some war files and install some related files. Can you suggest how to do this.

So, direct dumping of files is not an option.I got one sh file for that.Main page link The required prerequisite is installed.

In the sh file, changed the URL and updated the curl file to this link It is a different version of tomcat but still used for testing.

But I am getting this error.

Invalid package configuration: Cannot chdir to 'tomcat-packaging/'. Does it exist? {:level=>:error}

I guess this folder should be there but missing details about it. So deleted that folder line and tried. Now, getting this error:

Missing required -s flag. What package source did you want? {:level=>:warn} Missing required -t flag. What package output did you want? {:level=>:warn} No parameters given. You need to pass additional command arguments so that I know what you want to build packages from. For example, for '-s dir' you would pass a list of files and directories. For '-s gem' you would pass a one or more gems to package from. As a full example, this will make an rpm of the 'json' rubygem: fpm -s gem -t rpm json {:level=>:warn}

My modified sh file:

#!/bin/bash -xe

sudo gem install fpm

sudo apt-get install curl

# Put this script in a folder called tomcat-packaging

./mkdeb.sh 7.0.40

./mkdeb.sh 6.0.37

Sorry, I haven't touched Tomcat in 7 years. I'd assume there is a package available by now, or at least a better process to build one
