Java project local installation

Can anybody advise me on how to deploy a java project locally? I need to write auto tests there.
I have an api, ui parts and it’s a web project. Should i generate war file and place it on tomcat server, or is there a better way?
I just downloaded the project from gitlab, not sure what are my next steps.

Thank you!

I can already answer my question myself.
Maybe someone will find it useful :

  1. Import maven project.
  2. Build the project and generate the artifact
  3. Set up tomcat server to use and deploy your war file which was created at step 2. (I did it using IDEA ultimate IDE).
  4. Run server.
