Subject <Context path="" docBase="ROOT"... fails in Tomcat 5.5?
Date Wed, 01 Sep 2004 18:19:48 GMT
In Tomcat 4.0 and 5.0, I had the following in my server.xml file.

<Context path="" docBase="ROOT" debug="0" reloadable="true"/>

However, if I try to use this in Tomcat 5.5, I receive the following error 
in catalina.out. Does anyone know if I need to change something to get it to 
work with Tomcat 5.5, or, is this a bug?

Also, is ROOT a special case? I don't see where the ROOT directory is being 
assigned the the root path in any of the configuration files.
