I hope you mean docBase?

Don't see why they couldn't point to the same repository of files, provided 
that the files aren't open for exclusive use (Windows???). If you run on Unix, 
you could just symlink one directory to another and it would probably still be 
OK. Provided, of course, you're only reading the files from there. Otherwise, 
two applications could be stepping on each other's toes.

There would still be 2 different contexts (i.e. two different applications in 
the sense of the Servlet Spec), from what I understand.
