Sorry, that makes no sense to me.  <Environment> elements are created by whoever puts
together the <Context> element for the webapp - that's either you or the webapp developer.
 Use any convenient editor to update the <Context> element.

If you're referring to the Tomcat admin webapp, be aware that it's pretty much dead - it wasn't
carried forward to 6.0, and has received only minimal maintenance for some time.

Again, only *you* can supply the entries you want - nothing's going to magically create them
for you.

O.k., that explains why the name is non-standard, but as you noted, it's probably overkill
to create a second <Service>.  If you want to keep Tomcat's ROOT available while having
a separate default webapp for regular clients, take a look at virtual hosting:

Good idea; that's usually the fastest approach, even in the short term.
