hmm - you mean its context-root as specified in web.xml ?
Don't think thats doable...
The name of the war and an explicit context root doesn't have to match so why is it you want it ?
Is it causing problems somehow?
Not really, I just like Eclipse project names like "My Xyz Project" instead of "myxyzproject", but I don't like directory names with spaces on the server. Since this is just an aesthetic thing I will just rename the Eclipse project then.
Karsten, well I don't agree with your asthetics , but I do see a point of not having this tight of a link between project name and deployment name - its a good default, but there should be a way to "decouple" it.
Open a jira and we'll look - if you notice another server adapter that somehow allows it let us know (I don't recall seeing it though)
