to deploy a war file you just put it in the webapps/ directory of tomcat. In a live system I usually move the webapps directory to another drive so that the server and application are protected from a failure of each other.
a virtual path is one that is relative to the root context of your web applicatoin. So if the folder that contains your webapps is called examples/ then a virtual path is content/documents/mydocument
whereas the real path might be
/usr/java/tomcat4/webapps/examples/content/documents/mydocument
