the admins puts "/" at the end of docBase and path attriubtes in the
Context, it starts to expand, however, it has been creating another

I am guessing it might be relate to xml parser issue.  If anybody has the

Don't rely on a default value for unpackWARs: put it in your
instructions that it must be true, because that's a place where your
webapp deviates from the Servlet Specification (which only requires
containers to support packed WARs).
