It should be noted that the mavenSW tomcatSW plugin does have a tomcat:redeploy goal, which I tried to use via "mvn clean package tomcat:redeploy". However, my project did not seem to get updated on Tomcat when I tried this. I had much better luck with "mvn clean tomcat:undeploy tomcat:deploy".
The external tool configuration is shown below.
The pom.xml tomcat-maven-plugin reference is shown here:
