Hello,
How can the 8080 not be typed in address bar? Is there a configuration to do? Also can tomcat run independently in a server while other jsp engines are running or other web app servers such as those used by PhP? thanks.

Search for 8080 in the CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml file to located where the port value of the Connector tag is specified. It'll likely be the second or third occurance of 8080 in the file.
Change it to 80 if you like. That's the standard port for web servers, and it needn't be typed in when browsing to some web address.

as for your other question.. yes, Tomcat can run independantly of any other program.

For example, we have an Apache web server that connects to 3 separate tomcat instances, and the Apache web server is also configured for perl and php.
