Fair enough. Thanks for the explanation. My google-fu didnt pull up that

The only other option I could think of would be to deploy my app at the
root of a seperate webapp structure.

ie; instead of deploying my app to ".../webapps/someapp" deploy it to
".../webapps" directly.

Then I could create a host inside tomcat matching and
pointing its docbase at the webapp directly. mod_jk connections map
through nicely doing this and the URI/URLs line up.

However with this I keep getting the error "no context available" even
when I add one.

Tomcat doesnt seem to realise there is an app there and auto setup the
correct context. My manual contexts just dont work at all even when I
edit a working tomcat context to the new paths. The host works if I try
it normally however with my app deployed under a sub directory.

Would this be possible to do? I've failed in my attempts and I'd like to
know whether to pursue it or not.
