If you created the project as a Spring project in Eclipse, I will assume you are using Maven to build the project. If so, you can use Maven to generate a .war file for deployment to Tomcat.
To do this from a command line, navigate to the project root directory (the directory where the pom.xml file is) and run the command "mvn package" or "mvn install".
To do this from Eclipse, right-click on the project name in the Package Explorer. From the pop-up menu, select "Run As...", then "Maven install".
Either one of these methods should result in a .war file being created in the "target" directory under the project root.
Once you have a .war file, locate your Tomcat installation directory. Copy the .war file into the "webapps" directory under the Tomcat install directory. No need to unpack or do anything else with the file. Tomcat will automatically unpack it when the server is started. Start Tomcat, and you should be able to access the application.
