Mine is as follows (created by Netbeans, too):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context antiJARLocking="true" path="/mcmsweb"/>

I always do a netBeans 'clean and build', and then I copy the "mcmsweb.war"
file to tomee/webapps, and tomee/webapps/mcmsweb is always created. I
forgot to mention, that I usually delete the existing tomee/webapps/mcmsweb
folder before (re)starting tomee (tomcat7).

After starting tomee (tomcat7), tomee/webapps/mcmsweb folder is created and
the mcmsweb.war is unpacked to tomee/webapps/mcmsweb.

Just sharing my tomee (tomcat7) experience, and these steps are working
well for me in/on development server as well as production server.
