Alright, after uncommenting the following line in tomee.xml

<Deployments dir="apps"/>

it works, i.e. the deployed apps get started upon server start again.

However, I completely disagree with this "feature". First, it violates the "least surprises"
approach and then, more importantly, with this line commented out, the apps are still present
in the apps folder. The effect is that you can't deploy them because they are present in the
apps folder and you can't undeploy them because the app server thinks they are not deployed?!
And then again, why would somebody not want to restart the deployed apps once they have been
deployed? So I think this "feature" is broken by design.
