Yep, that's basically what's going on:  /ginp is the root of the ginp 
context on my web site, and my ROOT context won't reach across the 
context boundaries.  Unfortunately, the ginp project is written to be 
build into a standalone .war file rather than a library .jar and a set 
of front-end classes, and I'm having to do a bit of futzing around to 
get the bits I need to work in my ROOT context, but I'm getting there. 

It would require a major refactoring to get the http pieces of ginp 
separated out from the parts that could be in a library .jar file, and 
I'm not ready to tackle that right now.  So I'm looking at some kind of 
deployment script to copy the .tld and other config files I need into 
the correct spots in my ROOT context.
