I created a zip file for my application (File | Export | Flex Project Archive) and I put that where Tomcat would deploy a war file, but nothing happened.
1) does this zip file have everything needed to have a fully working application?
2) how do I deploy it so I can see it on my test Tomcat server and eventually on the production one?
Exporting an archive is not for deployment to a server, but is for backing up or sharing your app with others.
To deploy to server export a release build and post the contents of the release-bin folder to the server.

You have done it again!. I just copied those outputs to the Tomcat and it worked. Next I have to get the biggie answered. But that is for another thread as I marked this one as answered!
PS, still looking for a picture. For a reason that is totally beyond me, I can't connect my flash drive to my home computer (it works on all the others) and I don't have anything here.
