           Summary: if docBase path contains "webapps", a backslash is
                    inserted
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: asf-bugzilla.e.birrered@xoxy.net


There seem to be a problem when interpreting docBase in context definitions, if
it contains the string "webapps". 

For testing, I moved tomcat-docs to a separate directory outside of webapps,
then defined a file tomcat-docs.xml in CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost :
<Context
        docBase="${catalina.home}/../something/tomcat-docs">
</Context>

When I name that directory "something" as above, everything works ok,
http://localhost:12345/tomcat-docs displays the documentation (my tomcat runs on
port 12345).

When I name that directory "webappsSomething", it is interpreted as
"webapps/Something" and loading the application (tomcat docu) fails on start of
Tomcat: 

<Context
        docBase="${catalina.home}/../webappsSomething/tomcat-docs">
</Context>

SCHWERWIEGEND: Error starting static Resources
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Document base
D:\be\JAVA_IDE\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9\..\webapps\Something\tomcat-docs does not
exist or is not a readable directory
	at org.apache.naming.resources.FileDirContext.setDocBase(FileDirContext.java:140)
	at
org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.resourcesStart(StandardContext.java:3754)
	at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.start(StandardContext.java:3925)

Apparently Tomcat is fiddling around with the docBase path as soon as it
contains the string webapps - why?
