You may define your root app in a different location than webapps. Just move
it to another directory and give the absolute path in your server.xml:


         <Context path=""
                  docBase="/absolutepath/main"
                  debug="1"
                  reloadable="true"
                  trusted="true" >
         </Context>

I have a setup like this and works fine.
