ok, I'll try to explain, as aliases won't do what I need.
It's an application that can be configured via an admin interface. The 
admin interface is one part of the webapp.
The main application is accessible via The admin 
interface needs access to the beans within the main application (e. g. 
to create tenants that live in context scope), that's why I created just 
one webapp with two dispatcher servlets.
One dispatcher servlet is responsible for the admin interface and one 
for the main application. Until now I make tomcat select them by using a 
context path for the admin interface.
But this is redundant, because the admin interface needs to be accessed 
via instead of just I would 
like to map to the admin servlet and 
to the main applications dispatcher servlet.
At a later stage, might be used for other admin 
tasks that must be accessible by users registered on the main site. But 
/admin is already shadowed.

Hopefully I could explain my problem a little better.
