I've been doing essentially that for a while and been satisfied with it. 

In my web.xml: 

  <servlet> tags


  <servlet-mapping> tags

In build.xml, for regular builds:

  <filter token="cactus.redirectorservlet" value=""/>
  <copy todir="${webapp.dir}/WEB-INF"

and for test builds:

  <filter filtersfile="${basedir}/etc/test/cactus.properties"/>
  <copy file="${basedir}/etc/web.xml" 

I put the config in cactus.properties because it seemed like an easy
place to find it. This isn't going to wrap very well: 

cactus.redirectorservlet = \
    <servlet> \
     <servlet-name>ServletRedirector</servlet-name> \
    </servlet> \
    <servlet-mapping> \
     <servlet-name>ServletRedirector</servlet-name> \
     <url-pattern>/ServletRedirector/</url-pattern> \

Basically, the run-tests target does a regular compilation, then
compiles the test classes into the same web app, copies in test support
files (junit, cactus, the filtered web.xml), and runs the tests. We
don't deploy with war files, so I don't have any experience with that.
