Umm, I posted a bug about this, what about the now infamous 404 (Apache
started after
Tomcat issue) and the fact that the manager app doesn't work when you try to
create a
new application due to apache indexing the apps when it starts. The only
being to restart Apache? The other thing being; because mod_webapp ignores
the rewrited filename preferring
to still look at the raw uri means things like mod_rewrite don't apply
(which for many people is
an absolute necessity). Check the user lists to witness the frustration.
