Using TeamCity's Tomcat to host other applications?

Is it wise to use the Tomcat servlet container included with TeamCity to host other WAR applications?

If so, is there a recommended approach do doing so epsecially with respect to upgrading TeamCity?

Thanks

Technically, it works. And additional deployed apps are preserved after TeamCity upgrade.
But we do not support this usecase especially, so more testing at your side will be required.
But if you need an application server chances are that more configuration will be required later, like upgrading Tomcat separatelly from Teamcity, or upgrade TeamCity leaving Tomcat untouched.

So I would recommend to deploy it manually, and install TeamCity by war-package as one of its applications.
