I'm not too sure about more precise path information in the tomcat.conf file.
I know it can be done, and that how it is done depends on how specific a
mapping you are interested in doing. Anyone else care to venture an opinion
on this one???
As for the servlet mapping... This is for mapping a servlet of one name to a
specific URI. For instance, if you have a servlet  called myservlet in the
package and you wanted every request that had /info in
it to be routed through that servlet then your web.xml should look  like:

http://mydomain/mycontextname/info/somemorepath?somedata  to access the
hope this helps,
