Subject RE: How to "start" a web app?

    Michael, my email was specifically in reply to 
    Sarcasm aside, it's an interesting thought process you must 
    have gone through to start off with  "Right", and then 
    proceed to point out how it's wrong. 
    The point I was attempting to make is that there is nothing 
    wrong with the docs, and that they are not missing 
    "Essential Information".  Unless someone can tell me how 
    the 3rd bullet on the docs I linked to allows a person to 
    infer "recursion", I don't think the docs need changing. 

I don't believe I mentioned recursion?
  I asked if context 'fred' should be sought within webapps
(as webapps/fred) or within (webapps/ROOT/fred).

I don't see that as recursion?

    Perhaps it's the use of 'subdirectory'. If it was changed 
    to read "Any directory within the Application Base 
    directory", would that avoid this miscomprehension? 

I'm sorry Mike, I've lost the link you sent.
If 'Application Base directory' is clearly defined as webapps,
then tc searching within that would make sense.
Its the presence of ROOT directory then that becomes odd?
I'm used to thinking in terms of trees (xml background) hence
I made a 'wrong' assumption that it was the base of all contexts.
  Is that as daft as it sounds?
