Getting DD4T for Java running on Windows

I created a relatively short (25 minute) video that should help you get DD4T for Java set up and running in Tomcat on a Windows server. It’s a pretty straight forward process but for developers without much Java experience there are some sticking points than can make the set up a little more challenging.

The download links and maven commands mentioned in can be found further down this post below the video.
