Subject Pound Signs in Context/Paths

My Tomcat Version: (running under Jboss)

I'm trying to understand the script we use to deploy to our Tomcat server. 

The scripts uses pound signs (#) instead of slashes in the path to the WAR 

file being deployed. Let me first be clear:  The script works. What I=20
DON'T understand is why, or the purpose of the pound signs.  I tried=20
searching the Web for documentation on the use of the pound signs, but=20
came up dry.  I'm concerned that we might be using an undocumented feature 

that could break in future versions of Tomcat.

Can anyone point me to official documentation about pound signs (#) in=20
Tomcat paths/contexts?
