      Description

      RepositoryServlet fails to start in case using unpackWARs="false" option to run cms.war without extraction in Tomcat like the following example (in $CATALINA_BASE/conf/server.xml):

      <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps"
      unpackWARs="false" autoDeploy="true">

      It throws a servlet exception in the following code (RepositoryServlet.java):

      if (!storageLocation.startsWith("/") && !storageLocation.startsWith("file:")) {
      // try to parse the relative path
      storageLocation = config.getServletContext().getRealPath(storageLocation);
      if (storageLocation == null)

      { throw new ServletException("Cannot determine repository location " + config.getInitParameter(REPOSITORY_DIRECTORY_PARAM)); }

      }

      ServletContext#getRealPath() may return null in case that the cms.war is running without being unpacked.

      So, I think it's better to use a default storage directory instead in this case under the current working directory (e.g, "./repository_storage").
