I had a doubt of something I had heard with regard to the access of URL possible without port number if apache is used in the environment. We have our application running with JBOSS as the AS and tomcat as the web server. My question is that is the URL,


assuming tomcat is running on port 10080 can be accessed like


without the port number if apache is also installed.

I hope, my question is clear.

Please, help in solving the doubt.

Just use the default HTTP port number, which is 80.
