That means that all can be passed to tomcat, who looks at and does its own mapping to find the right context.  It doesn't mean 
that you can map to the examples webapp (unless you also 
change the tomcat config) and it doesn't mean you can map to /examples/a and to /examples/b and it doesn't mean you can map * to /examples/%0 
where %0 is what is in *.  Or not as far as I can tell, anyway. JServ is much more 
flexible in this regard.

On another note I've totally given up on the apache autoconfiguration because of its 
inconsistant behavior.
