jsp app outside of tomcat directory structure

I'm sure it can be easily done, but I just can't find it.
I want my tomcat application source code to be outside tomcat installation directory structure. And I would still like default (http://localhost:8082/) URL to point to a version of application inside the catalina_home (because of deploying), so I don't want to change any existing settings, just want to add a new folder in which tomcat will search for the jsp files.
I added following lines :

into server.xml file, but it looks like it doesn't work. Am I on the right trace _
