I don't know Tapestry, but when I write a normal JSP or HTML file, all
I have to do is press the browsers Refresh button, and I see the
latest changes I've made.

Also, I keep my projects outside Tomcat's/ webapps folder and simply
configure the docBase attribute of the Context node to point my
project's folder and Tomcat finds it, when the {ApplicationName}.xml
or ROOT.xml containing the Context node is placed under
..../conf/Catalina/[Host]/ folder.

The above set-up saves a lot of development effort and time because,
all that is required to see changes in JSP/Html is a browser refresh.
