Re: Dealing with application names in a JEE web app

I'm delving more heavily into JSP/Servlets and JSF at the moment. I've
found something that looks like a questionable design issue by the JEE
folks at Sun (now Oracle, of course) and I'd like to pick your brains
about how you might deal with it.
Basically, when developing a JEE web app, the application name gets
inserted into every URL and associated path. If my app is named
TechDarwinia, for example, then all URLS look like this:
The problem is of course that the web app could be renamed anything by
the deployer/sysop, and I've got strings hard coded to that app name
So how do folks write their apps so that they can handle being deployed
under different names?
<c:url> and equivalent tools that inspect the actual context path (the
"/TechDarwinia/" part of your URL) for the request, largely.
