The key clause in the statement was "If you want to keep the directory name for your webapp
as ParticleBoard"; some people insist on deploying webapps in a directory different from the
URL path, for no discernible reason (possibly brain fade due to exposure to Perl).  Normally,
one would place the default webapp in the webapps/ROOT directory (or webapps/ROOT.war) and
be done with it.

As Andre pointed out, placing a webapp under the <Host> docBase with one name *and*
having a conf/Catalina/[host]/[otherAppName].xml file will likely get you double deployment,
although Tomcat is getting better at detected such illogical configurations.
