Thanks for your answer, which I think would help somewhat. But I already 
figured this part out, and have that working.

The part that I have trouble with is using my own classloader, because 
with the classpath I can only refer to jars and directories. What I need 
to do is load classes from jars within jars, and other places as well.

But I will certainly look into the org.apache.catalina.classloader 
context attribute. That one had missed my attention.
