For Tomcat specifically, the context path "ROOT" is treated as a magic
name that corresponds to the root web application.  Note that you'll
have to remove the webapps/ROOT directory, because that's where the
root webapp shipped with Tomcat lives.  You can get additional help
with this sort of thing on the Tomcat user mailing list.
