ok great, I guess I forgot to look sufficiently at the following steps,
I am doing this on a windows machine. Is this possible and practical
regarding the next step?

mvn jetty:run-war. You may need to give Maven more memory: in a bash shell,
export MAVEN_OPTS=-Xmx1024Mep

and also doesn't the following require tomcat to be running? (not a big
problem, but it's listed as optional) If so, does taste somehow
automatically find the tomcat service, in other words, it tells tomcat to
look at certain taste directories, or something?
(sorry, my server knowledge at the present is limited to static apache web
server where we point the server to htdocs). In other words, I don't have to
onfigure tomcat
