I don't think this is necessarily correct in all circumstances.

Try as I might I can't get any of the automatically generated files to reflect that I want
to access my servlets at
rather than at /webapp/servlet/servletalias

I did succeed in making this work with tomcat and apache by editing my tomcat.conf file as

Alias /webApp "C:/ApacheGroup/Tomcat/webapps/webApp "
<Directory "C:/ApacheGroup/Tomcat/webapps/webApp ">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
ApJServMount /webApp /webApp
