it doesn't work.
i've created the war file with this content :
eshop
- WEB-INF
- classes
- lib
- jsp files
and put the war on tomcat home\webapps
but tomcat doesn't unpack the war file
best regards

Oops.
Shouldn't the directory structure be
[-eshop
- WEB-INF
- classes
- lib
- jsp files ]
instead of the
[- eshop
- WEB-INF
- classes
- lib
- jsp files ] ?

Luis:
You put your war files in ..\webapps folder.
Since you said you did that, you should be able to access your web application.(even though you may not see the exploded directory structure under ..\webapps folder).
Second, if unpacking is not happening is your concern, then there is an attribute called unpackWARs for the Host element in the server.xml file. It takes boolean values. Make sure it is set to true for whatever Service element you're interested in.
FYI, if the war was packed properly, you should be able to access your web application, without exploded directory structure.

Does Tomcat log any exceptions on the console? If there are problems with, for instance, the web.xml file or taglib descriptors, deployment will fail and the application will not be available.
