 Put your webapp somewhere outside of Tomcat's directory structure, and create the file conf/Catalina/localhost/ROOT.xml
containing the following:

Proably because if you leave it as .../webapps/ParticleBoard/.. , then 
it will be /both/ the "ParticleBoard" /and/ the ROOT application (with 
the context file above), which may create some confusion.
Is this the right explanation, experts ?
