If the web app is deployed as a directory, you can call
context.getDocBase() for this.  If the context is deployed as a WAR file,
there is no such thing as the "document base as an absolute path".  In
such a scenario, you need to choose one of the following options:

* Forward *all* requests to Tomcat for processing

* Reject a webapp that is deployed this way
