During development, you just set up Tomcat to run from a directory that is
organized like a WAR (with a /WEB-INF directory and so on).  Then, you
just edit the JSP pages in place and they get automatically recognized.

Don't even worry about WAR files until you get ready to package your app
for production deployment.
