           Summary: Manager displays spurious contexts when multi-level
                    context paths are used
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.17
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Webapps:Manager
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ron.gomes@morganstanley.com


We deploy Web applications using three-level context paths like
"/webinfra/access/webapp".  When an app is deployed this way in Tomcat 5.5 using
a Context XML file, spurious "applications" are created that then appear in the
app list displayed by the Manager.  In the case mentioned here (for example),
"/webinfra" appears in the list once the real application has been deployed. 
The spurious application can be undeployed from the Manager, and that
effectively undeploys the original as well.

This is operationally troublesome and confusing, and it differs from the
behavior in Tomcat 5.0 (from which we want to convert).

Note that the spurious contexts only appear if "unpackWARs" is set to "true"
(the default) so that WAR files are expanded into Tomcat's work area.  (Running
with "unpackWARs" set to "false" is no longer a viable option for us because, in
that configuration, changes to the underlying WAR files, which we can't reliably
prevent, often lead to JVM crashes on a running system.)
