getContextRoot() returns forward slash rather than empty string for apps deployed to root context
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-3921
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-3921
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Tomcat
    Affects Versions: 2.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.1, 2.0, 2.0.x, 2.1.1, 2.2
            Reporter: Jay D. McHugh
            Assignee: Jay D. McHugh


An app deployed to the root context should have "" returned by getContextRoot() - On Tomcat,
we are returning "/".
