How would I go about deploying a WAR file on a shared host? Everything I read about deploying them says I put them in webapps inside the Tomcat root directory. Then go to localhost:8000. My hosting account is a shared account where I can get to my site by theIP/~MyUsername/. I don't have access to anything above the /home/MyUsername directory. Tomcat is running, and I can upload JSP files and view them. Do I just have to manually unpack the WAR file and upload the contents?

If I could get root access, how would I deploy a WAR file? If I put the file in the webapps directory, would it unpack into the MyUsername directory?

Tomcat has a "manager console" (usually http://IP:port/manager or you can access that from the tomcat home page of the container) which can be used to deploy WAR files.

You should check how the mapping done in the server.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
