Using Filebeats in the ELK Stack

The elk stack from the demo works well, but it only grabs docker logs. I would like to also forward the logs from an application, in this case a tomcat server, into my logstash/ELK stack. Filebeats/logstash forwarder was a way to do that before but I am new to it. Does anyone know how to configure it with the ELK stack demo or have another way of getting those logs to the ELK stack?
