cvs add from a different directory

Hello cvs guys

My local working repository is at /home/jim/work.
now to add a file/dir under this directory I have
cd /home/jim/work
cvs add newfile

Instead I want something like.

$cvs -L /home/jim/work add newfile

ie., I want to specify the working directory too.
there is no such option to cvs. This can be done
through scripts, but that will be platform specific.

My actual requirement is I want to run this command
though a java program and I cant make java to change
the working directory(there are some ways to change
dir but they are unreliable and not recommended).

so I am looking if this can be specified at the
cvs command itself. Any help would be useful.
