The deploy log in the runtime system (deploy.X.trc or deploy.X.log inside the work/ directory, or defaultTrace file) shows the following error:

Caused by: Cannot deploy two applications with identical application aliases (context roots).
Your application [name] defines an application alias (context root) [alias] that is already in use by application [name].
There are two possibilities in order to proceed with deployment: 1) Define different application alias (context root) for your application [name] (this is the preferred option). 2) Undeploy the application [name].
