Can you elaborate on this "hot deployment" and Ant tasks?  By "hot
deployment", do you just mean being able to deploy/install/start a web
application using Tomcat's manager application?  And does the Ant
tasks aspect of it just allow this to be done in a more "batch" way,
via the command line?  Also, is doing this via Ant tasks only
available in Tomcat 4.1.X, not 4.0.X?  (I saw a description of it on
the 4.1.X manager how-to page, but not the 4.0.X page).

Also, is this something that only applies to Tomcat standalone, or
will it work when Tomcat is integrated with Apache?  If so, how does
it take care of the neccesary Apache httpd directives (either JkMount
or WebAppDeploy or whatever) to make sure Apache forwards the
appropriate requests to Tomcat.
