And it breaks things.  You are now getting double deployment, once under the name AddressBookServer
and once again as ROOT.  Do it the right way, by renaming your .war file to ROOT.war, and
placing the <Context> element in conf/Catalina/[host]/ROOT.xml - that also avoids having
to change the contents of the .war file.  (Note that Chris' suggesting was missing part of
the path.)  As Chris said, when you do that, remove the path and docBase attributes.

That's really asking for trouble.  A parser has complete freedom to ignore any .. entry in
a URL, so if it happens to be working now, you're extremely lucky, and there's no guarantee
it will work tomorrow.  The URL is *not* relative to any current directory, since it doesn't
target the file system per se.
