How can I configure Tomcat such that I can move my jsp files (that I'm developing) to a directory other than .../tomcat/webapps/examples/jsp/servlet/?
When you configure Tomcat to describe the web application, you can set the document root. You do this in file
Just add (or edit if it already exists) a line like
<Context path="/myapp" docBase="webapps/myapp" />
NOTE: By default, the above setting is the document root. So even without adding the Context tag, you can place the JSPs anywhere under tomcat/webapps/myapp
