An application server has no legitimate reason to change the code it's
executing. Expanding a WAR file is an exception, because it cannot
handle this format directly.

Tomcat 4.0 has an option that lets it read the WAR file directly,
without expanding it.[1] And even without that option, an
administrator could do the expansion when installing the application.

You still need a writeable directory to store compiled JSPs, but even
this is not a requirement: there are tools that can precompile JSPs
for you.

[1] I think SUN intended it to work like that.
