You might want to take a look in the configuration
file $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml at the sections that
define the contexts. The path is sort of from the
docroot of your websererver like "/admin" if you want
to access the admin context as
"http://your.domain.com/admin", the documentation says
it is relative to the context manager's location. The
document base is usually, but not always a directory
that is relative to your $TOMCAT_HOME directory such
as "webapps/admin" and yes the context name can be
whatever you choose as long as it is not already in
use on your server.

Most of this info is available online at:
