Note, that META-INF/context.xml  (case matters!) is copied to
$CATALINA_BASE\conf\Catalina\localhost\<yourapp>.xml  when the
webappication starts for the first time.  You can have a stale copy

I would suggest you to enable more detailed logging.

Something like adding the following line to conf/

BTW, the waffle docs say "waffle.apache.NegotiateAuthenticator", but
in the source code it is "waffle.tomcat.NegotiateAuthenticator", i.e.
a different package

Are there any interesting messages in the log filess already?
