I had the same problem today. I reinstalled an application, which had been
working fine on a Linux box, on a solaris box, and made some changes in the
process. On the Linux box, I had left the Standalone service enabled on
some port, but on the Solaris box I removed the service completely from

In bugzilla (bug 4091) I found a suggestion to change docbase from ROOT to
ROOT.war (in my case), however this gave other problems. Putting back in
the standalone service fixed the problem. I suppose this is because the
standalone does the right thing, and then when the Apache (WARP-based)
service starts, the WAR has already been unpacked. I am glad to hear that
this will be fixed in 4.0.2.
