No - for examples of where the specified docBase is not a subdirectory
of the appBase value, look at Tomcat's built-in manager and html-manager
apps (and admin if you have it installed).  Their <Context> elements are
in .xml files in conf/Catalina/localhost, but the apps themselves are in
server/webapps to separate them from a site's production apps (note that
Tomcat 6 no longer isolates them).
