how to setup separate ports for web applications

Currently all my web applications are listening on the same port set in default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/server.xml (jboss 4)

For security reasons I have to provide separate port for each web application(now just adding a few new Connectors to server.xml so each one of web apps will be accessible on )

This is my Connector in a server.xml right now:

<Connector port="8080" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
maxThreads="250" strategy="ms" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443" acceptCount="100"
connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true"/>

We had same issue.
I am not sure there is any way to configure different port for for different web application if all web apps are resideing single JBOSS instance. Instead you can enable seucrity for each web application. Create different username and password for each.

To resove this issue I am using same port for different applications with different username and password.

Also You can create virtual host for each web app.

Please ignore if my reply won't help.
