hi,
The server context name is case senstive.Say we have a context name 'example' which is case sensitive. but sub folder and static page like html are not case senstive. ofcouse you have to call servlet by the reg named or by the actual name(which is case senstive).
This i am not able to figure has a feature or problem. Anyhow i can give you one suggestion. Since you know server context name is case senstive. Use a index page which you place in you server root, so user need to call your home page(i.e, index page) from which you link to the pages needed there after.
Their might be better alternative for this, hope some one help regarding the same.

Case-sensitive contexts are not unique to Tomcat. Apache is also case-sensitive.
