I can understand your confusion. Currently there are two parallel 
versions of Chameleon.

1) Chameleon version 1.0.3 -> which only uses context files as well as 
has the ability to call a Server Instance. A sample context 
(gmap_context.xml) file and template (test.html) using the cwc2.php are 
all located in /cwc2/htdocs/

if you are calling this sample app locally the server instance would be:


2) Chameleon version 1.1 -> Can use both Context and mapserver's *.map 
which you can create in maplab. The only real set back of the current 
Chameleon 1.1 version is that does not handle Server instances.

There is a sample Chameleon 1.1 application that you can separately 
download on the sample application uses an index.phtml to 
call the map file , template and chameleon.php

Hopefully in the next couple of months Chameleon 1.0.x will be phased 
out and only the current version Chameleon 1.1.x will take over.
