I just want to place a favicon in the document root.
How can I do this?
Again, the default tomcat favicon was shown up until (I think) when I
changed one of my projects' context path from "applicationName" to "/".
Since then, the favicon has disappeared and I would like to see it again
(and to have a better understanding of these things since I hope to deploy
to a web server in the coming months).
