Deploying into the root context is easy: just name your WAR file
ROOT.war (case matters!) instead of searchserver.war.

You URL will have to be
http://localhost:8080/?query=%22R.E.S%22&type=artist&fmt=xml (note the
additional slash) because the host must be separated from the path by a
slash.

If you are only using Tomcat (no web server out front), you have a few
options:

1. Just change your <Connector> in conf/server.xml from port="8080"
   to port="80".
   - On UNIX, this requires Tomcat to run as root,
     which is highly discouraged. You can use jsvc to run as non-root
     and still bind to port 80
2. Write some firewall rules (will be specific to your fw) to route IP
packets from port 80 to port 8080. This is tedious, error-prone, and
confusing. :(

I highly recommend the use of jsvc on UNIX. You can find out more about
jsvc here: http://commons.apache.org/daemon/jsvc.html
