Startup and shutdown aren't really any different within Eclipse and
using external batch scripts. What is different is that within Eclipse,
the separate Tomcat instance may be configured a little differently from
the installed version. For details see the Tomcat FAQ. Logging is
one of the areas that can easily differ. Probably the easiest way to
verify if your context listener is being called is to put a breakpoint
in the contextInitialized() and contextDestroyed() methods, then run in
debug mode and see if the breakpoints are hit.
