This is an excerpt from server.xml

        <!-- example - how to override AutoSetup actions -->
        <Context path="/examples" docBase="webapps/examples" debug="0" reloadable="true"
>
        </Context>
        <!-- example - how to override AutoSetup actions -->
        <Context path="" docBase="webapps/ROOT" debug="0" reloadable="true" >
        </Context>

in this segment two contexts are are set

first will direct the request for
http://IP:port/examples/servlet/HelloWorld
to
$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/examples/

second one is doing what ur asking by directing
http://IP:port/servlet/HelloWorld
to
$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/ROOT/

put some servlet in say hi-fi in
$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/
and
try the URL
http://IP:port/examples/servlet/hi-fi

u can edit this file

WEB-INF is meant for storing classes and web.xml and not static content. You cannnot access
a html or
gif placed inside this. u can try this also.
