I have deployed a headless SI webapp into an Apache Tomcat server (7.0.x) and I am using a ContextLoaderListener to bootstrap the configuration as described in this thread and it all works fine. However, I do not want my webapp to auto-start when the Tomcat server starts but instead start/stop it manually. The examples I see online all show using the
option to tell Tomcat whether to auto-start a webapp but, my webapp does not include a servlet. Is there any other way of specifying this auto-start option for webapps with no servlets? Or would I need to use the servlet method to bootstrap the webapp instead?
