Hej Dirk,

In catalina.base you have a directory called conf which contains a
file server.xml.
Here you have settings for your Host(s). By default you have
"localhost" with an appBase="webapps". By default, the webapps
directory is a sibling of conf. The webapps directory lets you drag
and drop web applications. webapps/ROOT is an expanded web app
representing the / context where you can drop static content with
immediate results.

You may use absolute paths:

Or relative paths (relative to catalina.base I assume).
