I tried to add such a Context element in jboss/server/default/deploy/tomcat41-service.xml but Tomcat would not serve requests to this web application.
To sum up: how can I set a web-application docBase when running Tomcat as
JBoss service.

are you talking about application.xml?

As you can see... here I'm specifying my context...

Andres thanks.
I am refering to the application.xml file, but I am trying to assign the web-uri a location that is not under the deploy directory (for example when I want to put specific files in a different location in the net).
As it now, the deployment process fails. In earlier versions of tomcat/jboss, I could use the web.xml file to specify different contexts and point them to other locations. Now, it looks that web.xml is ignored at all (whem tomcat runs as service under jboss).
Any advise ?

I'm trying to do the same thing; have you had any luck? I've been banging my head on it for a week or so.
