That's not enough: you have to actually create a webapp in order for
Tomcat to deploy it. You need a META-INF/context.xml file (unless you
want to configure your context in server.xml, but my understanding is
that it's better to use context.xml).

You'll also need a WEB-INF/web.xml file.

Take a look at the "example" webapp to see some sample files.

Sorry, but just creating a directory and throwing a JSP file into it
won't cause Tomcat to auto-deploy your "webapp".
