> You don't say if you want a single webapp instance, or a separate instance for each URI
path.  Assuming the latter, the only safe way to do it is to have separate .war files or directories;
anything else will cause timing problems.  Just copy the .war file (or directory) as needed
to the properly named location, and get rid of the <Context> elements from server.xml
(almost always a bad place for them).

Although if you want a single WAR but multiple deployments of that WAR,
place it somewhere outside the appBase and create multiple references to
it in CATALINA_BASE/conf/<enginename>/<hostname>
