Subject: Best practices - dev & deploy?

I running tc4.1.18, sdk1.4.0_01, struts1.1.b2 on a w2k machine.  TC runs as
an NT service.

I created a basic myHello project - just an app with 2 jsps.  Used Ant to
build and deploy the app but I can't see the changes unless I go through
this crazy process of:
(step1) removing the app using Manager
(step2) stopping the "NT service" - Apache Tomcat4.1 
(step3) deleting the app folder under catalina_home\webapps
(step3) deleting the appName.war file
(step4) starting the NT service - Apache Tomcat4.1
(step5) building the app using Ant - which of course redeploys the app

<Did I mention it was crazy?>

Question: What are some best practices for testing applications? 

I feel like I'm reinventing the wheel - there must be an easier way.

BTW, if I make changes to a jsp inside the container I can see the changes -
but of course I don't want to do that.
