can't find context path for default app  RSS feed

I have a app running fine with Tomcat 5.

The context setting in server.xml is:
<Context path="" managerChecksFrequency="1" docBase=""
debug="0" verbosity="0" reloadable="false">
</Context>

The WEB-INF folder, index.jsp and all the jsp folders are put directly under webapps, without any app name. I can access the app by default at:
http://localhost:8080/

Now, I try to deploy the app to Tomcat 6, it is not working any more.

The problem is that tomcat 6 always take any folder in webapps as an application, and any access to the jsps under the folders bellow webapps failed because tomcat is looking for WEB-INF/web.xml.

Any one knows how to solve this?

Thanks in advance.
