AFAIK, server.xml is not altered by war file deployments.
Tomcat would need to be restarted in order that those alterations to
server.xml are evaluated.

I also do not want to define the datasource as

What are the details of the entry being made in server.xml?
Is Plesk making these alterations?
What process are you using to upload the WAR?

META-INF/context.xml is the best location I think.

Please provide more details about the tomcat version and the answer to
the questions above.
