If I might add to this discussion - something I've found on both a PC
and a Solaris system - if I'm not using the Tomcat manager to deploy an
application, I not only have to restart Tomcat, I have to restart my
whole system - or maybe I'm not being technically precise here; I have
to log out and back in on Solaris, reboot the PC. THEN the .wars I put
in /webapps will expand (unpack) and deploy with the start-up of Tomcat.
All the docs I've read say to "just drop the .war in /webapps and
restart Tomcat" but that never worked for me...
