Oh, well, in that case, you can just the autodeploy feature I'm building for
the WebApp module. Basically, everything you need to configure is a WARP
connection. The warp protocol allows you to query the servlet containers
what web applications are "deployable", and from then all is done

All you need to configure is the Tomcat 4.0 "server.xml" configuration file,
and everything is done automatically for you...
