By default, when myapp.war gets deployed, Tomcat creates a myapp directory in the mydir (appBase) directory and expands the war there.
Is it possible to specify a different directory for that expansion to take place?

One option is to set the "unpackWARs" attribute to false.
Tomcat will still unpack it but it will do so 'behind the scenes' somewhere in the work directory.
