There are too many unknowns in your post to say for sure. The simplest answer is no, you do not need to create a WAR file to simply deploy a single JSP. Place the JSP under $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ROOT and it should work.
I think maybe you need to tell us a bit more about your "project" and what it is you are trying to do.

This is a web project. I have checked out the code form CVS.Actually, I don't know, how to setup up my web project in the eclipse. Could you please tell me, how to setup my web project in the eclipse. I have created a tomcatproject in that, I have imported the zip file of my webproject, Is this is the rightway?
I have modified one of the jsp file of that project, And I was running with tomcat. Whenever I open my project browser, I don't see any changes,
