Subject RE: Servlet Context Initialized more than once
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2004 14:02:06 GMT

It's because you have both autoDeploy/liveDeploy enabled (which makes
tomcat scan the appBase directory for webapps and deploy them
automatically), AND a Context explicitly defined in server.xml.  So
tomcat does both and that's why you get double deployment.
