I think you should use a directory outside ${user.home} ... the WAR
structure should be immutable even if it's unpacked. The only reason
to allow unpacked archives should be to edit config files, and only if
the webapp is undeployed. I don't think it's a good idea to allow hot
editing of files. IMHO of course.
