In Resin 3.0, we had this configuration and it didn't have a problem.
Actually, I recall that we did in an early version of 3.0.x, but the
problem was corrected in the later versions.
There are two reasons why we explicitly had the <web-app> tag in
resin.conf in resin 3.0:
- On our test environment only, I want to specify some security
constraints to the root web app. to prevent access, for example:
> <web-app id="/" document-directory="webapps/ROOT">
> <realm-name>Mariner Supply</realm-name>
In production, we didn't want this security constraint.
- In our development environments, we specify a different name for the
war file and we want to assign it to be the root application in the
host. For example, we have
> <web-app id="/" document-directory="webapps/go2marine_store"/>
