There is a spec compliant solution to the OPs question...

Whose yelling? I don't see any shouting on this thread. I see an OP who
wants to be spoon-fed the answer rather than doing a little research and
actually learn something and I see you throwing misdirection and
inaccurate information around but I don't see any yelling.

Yet again, there is a perfectly simple spec compliant solution and the
OP has pointers they need to find it.

There is no client or customer here, just members of the Tomcat user
community. This community has some ground rules which have been better
described than I ever could by others:
http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
http://slash7.com/pages/vampires
and people are expected to abide by them.

A simple three step solution.
1. Read the Servlet specification. Any version would do but since the OP
is using Tomcat 5.5, the Servlet 2.4 spec would be best.
2. Understand what a context path is.
3. Read my original answer again.
