Alternative resource directory

I'm building a web-app using JSF+JSP deployed in Tomcat. In this web-app I want to offer .doc files online. So I want a directory where I can just drag-and-drop these doc files and using a simple search in the web-app(which will look in this directory) to be able to show the contents. But the web-app only sees the subfolders below its root context. And I don't want to include the .doc in the web-app and reload it every time I add a new .doc. Any idea on how to declare this alternative directory?

I agree. Here's the link:
