you need to go in "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\conf\Catalina\localhost" or where ever your "\conf\Catalina\localhost" and make a APPName.xml file, APPName may be anything. Content of the application would be
<Context path="/APPName" docBase=" path of the code" >
</Context>


Thank You

APPName may be anything.

Actually, I think that APPName has to be the name of an existing application.

even it could be like this as well

<Context path="/" docBase=" path of the code" >
</Context>

So how is Tomcat able to map out the location of the "jsp-examples" and "servlets-examples"?

I can't find their context tags in any of the tomcat xml files.

There is a built in convention that if a directory under webapps has a WEB-INF subdirectory and there is a correctly formatted web.xml there, then that directory is a web application. All according to the servlet API.
