Well, the important stuff occurs where you put "....". Try this:

ant uninstall
ant -v install

to see what's going on. I suspect (and I may be wrong) that the war is 
not uploaded and put in a location that Tomcat can see. I think that in 
order for this to be automatic you either have to:

- modify your server.xml to tell it where to find your warfile or
- put the exploded webapp in Tomcat's default directory. I'm not sure 
that's done automatically. I think that if you don't build a warfile but 
do the install, the directory is copied as is to Tomcat's  webapp 
directory. I'm not sure what happens when you do this manually.

I'm not all that comfortable with Tomcat yet and I won't have time to 
master it before January.
