Don't know WebSphere, but you should have a separate location for the
repository/ directory, as it contains repository data (even if you use
database persistence managers, there is always the namespace and node
types registry and the index files). You want to keep them separate
from your application code. Have a fixed directory /data/repository or
something in the home directory of the websphere user
/home/websphere/repository, for example.

The repository.xml is typically not put into the war file, since it
contains things that the server administrator needs to configure
(database urls, etc.). The typical way would be to put the
repository.xml in the repository folder as described above.

You'll have to change the path to the repository.xml in the web.xml
then - or where it is eventually configured, but if you have a fixed
path, you only need to change it once in your build system.
