I was unable to do so, because admin.xml already contains <Context /> tag that points to web application. But I have created another context file images.xml and IT WORKED . Thanks

As I understand this is safe way to share static resources like that?

It have read access right to this directory. I have tried to make this directory WAR style by adding WEB-INF folder with web.xml file, but images were not reachable.

I found another way of getting access to static images outside web application.

You need define context in server.xml inside Tomcat configuration:

server.xml (this have to go into 'Host' tag):

That way I am able to reach static images like that:

My new question would be:
This way to share static resources is safe? Does it have any disadvantages?

Anybody knows how to properly use this aliases? Please?
