You can use JMX or the manager to deploy an application under any
context name. I haven't tried myself, but I would imagine that you can
also provide a context.xml to ensure that you get the database
configuration that you need.

I'm still puzzled as to what you think changed in the web browser world.

Hm. Are you talking about multi-process MSIE versus single-process MSIE?
It's dangerous to rely on the user launching separate browser processes
to use your application(s) if the possibility exists that significant
confusion can arise.
