I guess the secret lies under

Next, if using Apache with Tomcat (which is
recommended on a production server, since Tomcat
standalone is not yet as efficient or robust - Apache
is far more mature!) we need to tell Apache to forward
the same partial pathnames to Tomcat.
This is done by editing the tomcat .conf file (it's
called tomcat-apache.conf if you're using Tomcat 3.1
and Apache 1.3.12) in your Apache setup. Add the
following lines: 
Alias /cocoon $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/cocoon
<Directory "$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/cocoon">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
ApJServMount /cocoon /cocoon
<Location /cocoon/WEB-INF/ >
AllowOverride None
deny from all

This tells Apache to direct requests that come in
under that partial path "/cocoon" to the directory
under Tomcat ($TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/cocoon).
