Subject RE: Using a META-INF\context.xml doesn't work as expected with Manager app .war upload
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2004 16:01:40 GMT

I don't think we support a nested docBase when using a WAR file, such as
tests/whatever.  The WAR itself is the docBase if packed, or the WAR's
root directory if unpacked.
