Default Unable to set context in web.xml or context.xml.

I'm attempting to set up a War whose file name will change according to the version of the application it contains. I've read that you can set the context path of the running app by creating a context.xml file in META-INF, or by adding parameters to the web.xml file in WEB-INF. So far, I haven't had any luck with that. Can anyone suggest a way that actually works?

create an xml file with <Context path="/myContext" docBase="myContext.war" .../> tag in it, this xml file should also be name as the war file and place this file [if you are using tomcat] in TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost directory.
