Since writing my original message, I've done two ISP/Hosting deployments.

The first was to They're using an older version of 
resin. Installation was pretty smooth. My only comment is the older 
version of Resin they're using doesn't support welcome files that are 
created via servlet mapping in the web.xml. Installing the app, was as 
simple as uploading the war file. It deployed within a minute or so, and 
I was going.

The second was on a Network Solutions Virtual Private Server deployment. 
I tried using Plesk to deploy the WAR file, and it wasn't working. 
Logging in via SSH to the root account helped me find out they were 
using the GNU 1.4.2 JVM. My app is 1.5 or higher. I downloaded JDK 
1.5.0_18. Because of memory restrictions, I couldn't run the JVM. Then, 
I realized that the VPS only had enough memory to run one JVM. After I 
killed Tomcat and the GNU JVM, I was able to start the updated JVM. Once 
I updated the JVM, I was able to use Plesk to deploy the WAR file. This 
went pretty well. In this case, the application is deployed as an 
uncompressed WAR file. If your application can't handle this then you 
might have some problems. In my case, the application generally ran 
fine. I spent another hour or so fixing it so that features that 
wouldn't work when running as an undeployed WAR file were disabled.
