If I put JSPWiki.war into $CATALINA_HOME/webapps and Apache/Tomcat is  
running, then after a few seconds, the directory  
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/JSPWiki appears without me doing anything. On  
the other hand, if I delete said JSPWiki.war, then after a few  
seconds, the directory $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/JSPWiki disappears, too  
(without me doing anything.)

I tried that, but I haven't got to the end, yet, as it is a rather  
large file. Well, I still get the
    The requested resource (/JSPWiki/) is not available.
error when accessing http://localhost:8080/JSPWiki (that is, not  
specifying Install.jsp.)
