Thanks Warren, Tim and Charles,

Right now I'll leave it as $CATALINA_HOME/conf/context.xml since at this
time I'm only deploying one webapp. I had hoped to make it webapp
specific, but oh well...

If I do end up having more webapps I'll create a shell script (linux OS
here) that copies a webapp specifically named context.xml to the proper
place(s) during upgrades/installation.

Thanks for you help with this.

Maybe one day, if it does not go totally against the designers'
philosophy we can have a persistent webapp specific context.xml. (Hint
Hint) :)

Perhaps you could provide your customers with an installation package
that provides the .war file and a master context copy for editing
somewhere outside of Tomcat, along with a deployment script that copies
both the .war and the edited context file into Tomcat.  [Sorry, that
sentence was way too long...]
