404 Error on web application

I am trying to install a web application to WebSphere Application Server Community edition. Here my configs are below. The application installs just fine except for the following message in the logs:

2010-08-16 11:54:54,421 ERROR [TomcatContainer] Unable to add the child container: /myurl . Please check if your project's context-root is unique.

When try to execute the url I get a 404 error in the browser.

Any ideas what the problem is?

<application application-name="myEar"
<dep:non-overridable-classes />
<security:role role-name="myUserRole">
<security:realm realm-name="custom-realm">
name="guest" />

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns=""
<dep:environment xmlns:dep="">
<dep:hidden-classes />
<dep:non-overridable-classes />
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
