Subject RE: ant emulation of "Upload a WAR file to install"

Note that: 
- The DevX article writer would have done well to tell people about the
Ant tasks tomcat supplies in order to deploy/undeploy/restart webapps,
instead of encouraging people to write their own (possibly buggy, likely
incompatible with future tomcat versions) tasks.
- The article was written prior to the release of tomcat 5 stable, which
contains behavioral changes in this area.
