It can't unless you either move the files to someplace that the web container can address, set up the server to access them there, or write a servlet that can read the files from the file system and stream them to the browser.

I can now. just setup <Context></Context> in server.xml. It will works.

However, how to setup in WebSphere?

If anyone knows, please let me know.

Thanks

Yes, as I said they need to be somewhere where the server can access them.

For the rest of your question, I'm moving this to the Websphere forum.
