How to place html and jsps on Apache instead of in tomcat directory?

Is there a way of getting jsp pages to be able to sit
anywhere on a web server, rather than just under the proxy tomcat webapp
directorys?

What ever the solution for that is probably the same for .xml files,
which
I would like to be able to place anywhere example /net/www/cocoon but it
seems like tomcat isnt going to let me do that...

Any ideas...?


Basically I need the be able to sit
xml and jsp files outside of the tomcat document root.  Is this
a) possible and b) implementable?  
I've done a bit of poking around, Do I need to modify the server.xml file for tomcat (.tomcat/conf/server.xml).
 There is a <context> tag
(eg.
<Context path="/examples"
        docBase="webapps/examples"
        crossContext="false"
        debug="0"
        reloadable="true" >
</Context>
) in the server.xml.  Hoew to figure out how to get this to
point to directories outside of the doc root that apache accepts.  Do I need to modify the doc root
for apache also (httpd.conf).  

Hope this helps.

Awaiting suggestions .........?

Basically, to clarify.... I  want to put all the jsps outside of apache ie /usr/local/apache... into maybe /net/www/examples..... is this possible?  What *.conf and *.xml files do I need to change?

see tomcat looks in  the server.xml file for the document root same like apache looks in httpd.conf..

you are on the correct path. you need to change the docBase to whatever directory you want to put the jsp pages to.
the contextpath is what is looked in the url, if the '/exampes' exist then  the server is told that the dictory for this url directory is "webapps/examples". insted of that you can define your own contextpath and docbase in the server.xml and put the web.xml in the directory you created... will work :)
