i get the same welcome page and all other pages without the port number after the localhost
The problem been that struts carries the base address 8080 in all other pages if html:base tag is used.

hi all well changing the port for the http/1.1 non-ssl coyote connector from 8080 to 80 solves the problem.This can be useful only if just Tomcat is serving pages The only problem been if Apache Web server is also used then both tomcat & apache web server will listen on port 80. So i think it is best not to use html:base tag for developing big websites as this tag carries the port number which gets displayed on the url in the location bar + in the view Source of the Page u get the base address.
