You can't do it with the manager app because it deploys to appBase and
applications deployed to the appBase ignore both path and docBase in the
context.xml.  Plus, having both the context descriptor in
conf/Catalina/<host> and the .war deployed in your appBase could cause
the application to be deployed twice.

I really wish you could deploy a .war with the manager app and have the
path be different than the application name without inadvertently
deploying the app twice.  The documentation seems pretty clear on this
but if there is still a working example of this being done please fill
me in.
