Not quite the same, but similar, is the following:

If you're using Tomcat 7, you have Servlet 3 compatibility, which means
you can serve resources out of a specially* constructed jar.


* Put resources in: myresource.jar:/META-INF/resources and they will
appear as from the root of the webapp.

e.g.  /META-INF/resources/logo.gif -> /logo.gif
