I set up the new machine per my conversation with MJ and had everything running. Unfortunately, tomcat seems to be configured such that removal of the original war file constitutes an instruction to Tomcat to delete the entire webapp! So a cleanup operation ended up hosing the adjustments I made. So, I did them again. I am now back where I was. I just need a restart on tomcat and we can start lookign at how well the new setup is working.
