If you use Manager's "/install" command, the webapp is not copied -- it is
run directly from the WAR file or directory that you specified as the
"war" parameter value.  (This works because the "docBase" property can
contain an absolute pathname, not just a relative one.)

If you use Manager's "/deploy" command (added more recently), the WAR is
uploaded into the Manager webapp's temporary working directory (somewhere
under $CATALINA_HOME/temp).
