accessing application using ONLY https and not http

Hi,
I want to access my web Application using ONLY https on tomcat 4.1.29. i.e. access using http should not be possible.
For this, I have created a short application. As per the tomcat doc guidelines, I tried to install JSSE and access https://localhost:8443/<mysiteName>.
Now, I can get the certificate when I access my site using https.
So, to make it accessible using ONLY http, I have commented <Connector > element for non-SSL setup in server.xml file. i.e.
<!-- Define a non-SSL Coyote HTTP/1.1 Connector on port 8080 -->
<!--
<Connector className="org.apache.coyote.tomcat4.CoyoteConnector"
port="80" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
enableLookups="true" redirectPort="8443"
acceptCount="100" debug="0" connectionTimeout="20000"
useURIValidationHack="false" disableUploadTimeout="true" />
-->
Now, I am able to access my application using only https and not http.
BUT, my question is, is that the only way to achieve only https access ?
has anybody tried better approach than this ? Please share.
Thanks,
Sachin
