NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade tomcat -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade tomcat -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

This package is exempt from moderation. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

Tomcat is a Application Server. It is possible to run Web application ARchive (WAR) files using Tomcat. Apache Tomcat requires a JDK in order to run.

Optional installation commands:

choco install tomcat -params "servicename=*servicename*" to specify a custom name for the Tomcat Windows service. This defaults to Tomcat8.

choco install tomcat -params "unzipLocation=*path*" to specify the root directory for the Tomcat service. This defaults to C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat.
Note: An apache-tomcat-9.0.0 folder is always created, so the actual install path is C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat\apache-tomcat-9.0.0 for the default case or path\apache-tomcat-9.0.0 with a custom option.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
