Make sure you have attributes autoDeploy="true" and unpackWARs="true" defined
on the <Host ...> element in <CATALINA_HOME>/conf/server.xml.
Tomcat should hotdeploy the wars itself then. This is one of the changes in this
branch: Jetspeed isn't expanding the wars itself anymore!

When you copy a war in the <CATALINA_HOME/webapps/Jetspeed/WEB-INF/deploy
folder, "all" Jetspeed does is infuse the war with the required changes
to the web.xml and add a portlet.tld (if needed). Then the war is *moved*
to the webapps folder for Tomcat to autoDeploy.
Previously, these wars were kept in the deploy folder to detect manual deletions
which than resulted in Jetspeed unregistering the portlet application and
undeploying the web application.
I've dropped this feature (for now; a different solution, probably through
new/enhanced PAM portlets is required).

Please read my comments in http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-210 for
details about what features are changed (and temporarily lost) in this branch.
