The docs seem very vague on this issue,  but it does imply that I could still 
use $CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml

One question that isn't answered in the docs is what the root element should 
be - the best seems to be the example for accessing a database, and even 
there it puts <Context ...>

I tried with context.xml in the directory you mentioned and it said it 
couldn't find the webapp "context", so I renamed it to my application and 
tried again.  But it didn't work.

So still stumped
