Description of problem:
WAIT_FOR_BEFORE_START does not work for / context applications. If you set WAIT_FOR_BEFORE_START to / and deploy a / application, the connectors never start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./standalone.sh -Dorg.apache.catalina.connector.WAIT_FOR_BEFORE_START=/
2. Deploy a / context
3. Check and see that the connectors never started as expected after / was deployed
Connectors never start with WAIT_FOR_BEFORE_START=/
Connectors start with WAIT_FOR_BEFORE_START=/ when / context app is deployed
It gets the newly started context through context.getPath(). When deployed to /, context.getPath() is returning "" so that doesn't match the "/" value specified on WAIT_BEFORE_START and so the condition is never satisfied. WAIT_BEFORE_START can't be set to "" to get a matching value there since only values containing "/" are effectively used.
