It has changed because we were using a container-specific mechanism to 
override the default context (which is name of webapp war or dir) by 
specifying a context name in the jetty-config.xml file. We want to move 
away from these plugin-specific config files. Therefore, the only ways 
to configure an alternate context name for a webapp (in a 
non-Jetty/Tomcat/etc specific manner) are:

    1. in a Geronimo web.xml descriptor
    2, in an application.xml descriptor

The handling of Geronimo deployment descriptors is very much in the 
early days, although we are making progress to being able to deploy an 
ear/war etc containing Geronimo deployment descriptors. So hang on to 
your shorts 'cause option 1 will be coming along in the near future.

As the console isn't in an ear, then option 2 is a non starter.

In the short term, if you really want the context path to be /console, 
then you could just rename the war to console.war.
