Well, if

<Context path="/xyz" docBase="xyz" debug="0" />

doesn't work then you have a fairly serious problem on your hands. Unless 
you mean that the above doesn't work for "http://localhost"? (it shouldn't) 
 But if you are saying it doesn't work for "http://localhost/xyz" then 
that's a big problem.

Can you post your server.xml file and an explanation of your directory 
structure?

John
