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. 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
 I think SUN intended it to work like that.
