Application works under Eclipse but doesn't under tomcat 8

I have an large application that works when runing under Eclipse IDE. I am now trying to roll it out to Tomcat 8 on a Linux server and having problems. I get the WAR file to install and the application starts up and shows the login screen. Once the information is entered and the button is pushed the application just sits there spinning the “wheel”. Using the Chrome web browser to show the websocket the PUSH is being sent to the server but never completes.

There are no errors in the log files.
There are no jetty jars included in the WAR file. The client-complier is NOT in the WAR file either.

Anyone have a suggestion as where to look???

Thank you!
