Thanks Wendy for the response.

I have removed the full directory structure under my merchant.jar so (merchant) directory
and restarted, but it did not work either.  I am not familiar with the manager app, I would
like to try that. I looked under programs but do not seen an entry for it. Do I call it from
the cmd line?

IME, Tomcat will not auto-expand the .war file if the directory structure
already exists.  I use the Manager app to remove the existing webapp, (which
deletes the .war file and the directory structure,) then deploy the new .war
file, which expands and starts.
