Reading the doc, which for the docBase attribute states:
"The value of this field must not be set unless the Context element is defined 
in server.xml or the docBase is not located under the Host's appBase."


I suspect that if you examined the logs you would find an error message related 
to deployment of the test webapp.

If all you have in the <Context> element is the docBase and your webapp is 
located in the <Host>'s appBase directory, you don't need a <Context> element 
at all.
