Where does code run from with WebSphere 5.0?

I have questions, and probably simple to answer.
Since 2002 we have been using the WebSphere plugin 4.01 for Z/OS, at work.  We are suppose to migrate to WebSphere 5.0 soon, and I have a couple of questions.

1.  I have my JSP code sitting on the HTTP server, where it runs today.
Where will I need to put my JSP code to run under WebSphere 5.0?

2.  If I can leave the code on the current HTTP server, what do I need to do to have WebSphere 5.0 run it?

Sorry if these are basic questions, but I have no experience with WebSphere 5.0.

Any assistance is appreciated.
Cheers

From my experience with WebSphere 5.0, the best thing to do is to package your JSPs and supporting classes into a WAR and deploy it like that. As a result, you probably will not be able to leave the files on the current HTTP server. If it is possible set your document root to be other than the one that WebSphere creates, it would probably involve a lot of XML hacking.
