No, they don't.  For example the 'manager' webapp that ships with Tomcat
does not live under 'webapps'.

Seems like it's more trouble than it's worth, to me.  But if you can come up
with URL patterns that need to be handed off to Tomcat, plus convince Apache
not to serve anything under WEB-INF directly, then I'm sure you could get it
to work.

What problem are you trying to solve by doing this?  (And what does it have
to do with JBOSS?  I skipped it initially because I don't use JBOSS, but
your question only seems to deal with Tomcat/Apache/JK configuration.)
