DEPLOY -- uploads a WAR to a (possibly remote) Tomcat installation.  With
recent 4.1 releases, you can include a "META-INF/context.xml" file
containing the <Context> element (from server.xml) if you need to override
the defaults.

INSTALL -- immediately deploys a local WAR or directory.  Will generally
be faster, but must be on the same server.  I tend to use this for
development because I run Tomcat on my desktop PC.

UNDEPLOY -- Use if you did a DEPLOY.

REMOVE -- Use if you did an INSTALL.
