Here's what you want. For each webapp, you need JkMounts and Aliases. 
You can use VirtualHosts if you have different server names, but this 
works, too.

# Here's the root stuff
DocumentRoot		/path/to/webapps/ROOT
JkMount /*.jsp		root-worker
JkMount /whatever	root-worker

# Here's the stuff for 'app1'
Alias	/app1		/path/to/webapps/app1
JkMount /app1/*.jsp	app1-worker
JkMount /app1/whatever	app1-worder

You can do this for each of your applications. Just alias the base URL 
to the webapp's directory and add JkMounts.
