Dear Robert,

Although, I could not find a good doc for context.xml I tried your 
context path solution.

1. It works the same way.
2. You wrote: "That should stop the application from being copied." BUT:
I want to copy the new version of classes and reload tomcat.

The easiest way at this moment to add an ant task 'myreload' that 
invokes the remove and install. But this is not an elegant solution.

Please note: I am not a programmer and I am new to java and tomcat...
