I have found that the auto-configure feature is not really worth it: it
re-writes your configuration every time, so you can't really customize
anything unless you follow the recommendations and just run it once,
then customize.

If you want to use auto-configure and use that as a basis for your
"real" configuration, then go for it. I think that that starting from
scratch and just looking at the examples on the Tomcat site will give
you a better understanding of the whole process and ultimately result in
a configuration that you are more comfortable with and that you (should)
understand completely.
