context root

i am new to web logic , so i was just trying out some examples , i was deploying some .war files supplied by a jsp tutorial . when i deployed them it was running fine,
I have 2 questions. We find that the context root is set in the file weblogic.xml but that war did not have any weblogic.xml but it was having the context root /store ( as the server showed) . The contents of web.xml is given below

From where is the server getting the context root?
2 . And when i copied the store.war from folder G:\PROFESSIONAL JSP\1590592255-1\Chapter02 to folder G:\Chapter02 and tried to deploy it the server was giving a erroe that web.xml dosent exist.

Can any one tell me the reason .

I don't know what version of WLS you are using, but I found this in the 7.0 weblogic.xml context root documentation:

3. If context root is not defined in weblogic.xml or application.xmll, then infer the context path from the URI, giving it the name of the value defined in the URI minus the WAR suffix. For instance, a URI MyWebApp.war would be named MyWebApp.
