otherwise, it may very hard to find what is wrong

a little bit more user-friendly

yet more user-friendliness (and an error less)

I don't understand: your patches actually remove logging statements, yet the
title of this issue asks to add a warning, no?

corrected - now using

diff -u HostConfig.java.orig HostConfig.java

Specifying a non-existing appBase is not necessarily invalid. By default, Tomcat 7 will create the appBase if it does not already exist.

I have tweaked the tests Tomcat does in case a file is specified as an appBase.

I do not propose back-porting this to Tomcat 5 or 6.
