If you mean to ask whether you must keep the folder containing the jsp and
java source files inside the webapps directory, I think the answer is yes.

But don't give up.

You can make your own webapps directories, which do not need to be kept in
the tomcat directory. The way you do this depends on your version of tomcat:

V. 3.2 uses <Context/> entries in the conf/server.xml file, which I only
figured out recently.

V. 3.3 allows using the <Context/> entry in apps-appPath.xml files in /conf.

I haven't messed with v. 4, so I don't know yet.

Hope that helps.
