After making the above suggested changes the desired behavior goes
away.  Now instead of my application's landing page I get the tomcat
welcome page. I am using Eclipse Mars.2  Is it possible I simply
implemented the suggestions incorrectly?  Below is what eclipse did to
the server.xml file.

      <Context docBase="C:\apache-tomee-plume\wtpwebapps\ROOT##000"
path="/ROOT##000" reloadable="true"
