External static files

I have an application in which requirement is there will be a folder in local file system with a bunch of .htm files. These html files will be regenerated by a batch process (unrelated to this application) every 5 mins. These html files will have embeded images, those are referenced by relative path and stored in a subfolder under the above folder.

My web application is deployed as an EAR file. It suppose to display these html files. Problem I'm facing is since html files are outside web context (even outside EAR), web application cannot display these files. There is no http URL for these.

Is there any way above external folder can be defined as external resource outside webapp? Read an interesting article here. Wondering if there is a websphere equvalient for this.
