No[1]. It's a system property Eclipse sets when calling Tomcat and the
value of which Tomcat uses as a base path, for example when looking for
the config files.
Take a look at webapps/docs/RUNNING.txt.


[1] OK, the startup scripts (bin/catalina.(sh|bat)) do also set this
property and maybe are contained in Tomcat's installation directory. But
I don't think that was what you wanted to know.
