Description J 2007-06-15 15:07:50 UTC
I use latest 6.0 SVN snapshot. I store deployable WARs in "webapps-dist" (aside
"webapps"). This is my setup:

bash-3.2$ ls $CATALINA_BASE 
conf  logs  temp  tomcat-dist  webapps  webapps-dist  work
bash-3.2$ ls  webapps-dist
bash-3.2$ cat conf/Catalina/localhost/sample.xml
<Context docBase="${catalina.base}/webapps-dist/sample.war"/>

this ends up in: 

WARNUNG: A docBase /home/juergen/java/tomcat/webapps-dist/sample.war inside the
host appBase has been specified, and will be ignored

The patch has been applied to trunk and proposed for 6.0.x.

Sorry it took so long to get to this.
