JRUN4 WAR Deployment

I could really use some help from anyone who is familiar with JRUN 4. I have a war file I'm trying to deploy on JRUN 4 but dont' understand how to do it.

The documentation provided with the JRUN server says to put the war file in a specific location and it will auto-deploy.
I have done that and can see where it creates a temp directory of the war file. But where is the actual expanded version that I can edit? What is the context mapping so i can access my application?

I would appreicate any assisistance with this.

I haven't used JRun 4 so take my advice with a grain of salt...

1) JRun might not support you editing the deployed files directly. Have you tried to do a file search for a file you know the WAR contains, starting from the top-most directory of your JRun installation?

2) With auto-deployments, the context path is usually the same as the WAR file's name, i.e. copying foobar.war into the auto-deployment directory would result in the web application becoming available via http://localhost:1234/foobar and so forth.
