Do you mean appBase?  (Precision counts.)  Assuming that's supposed to be appBase, anything
under that directory will be automatically deployed (unless you've disable that).

Then name the directory aaa, not aWebApp (or see below).

The path attribute is not allowed here, and the docBase, if present, must either match the
name of the .xml file or point to a location outside of appBase.  If the latter, put your
webapp directory there, not under appBase.

Both diagnostics are accurate and appropriate.
