Why not change Tomcat's port to 80 if all you want to achieve is to remove the port number from the URL?

You can use Apache as a proxy to your Tomcat Server, refer to the below URL

Also make sure before you enable your proxy, the server is well secured, to start off with set the below in your Proxy Control block of Httpd file


Change "Allow from 192.168.0" to your ip.

Thanks,

Also one more learning from my experience is that change the generic port 8080 to some other port thats not "generic" enough for other to sniff and use your proxy.
