DNS related problem and Tomcat

Hi guys, since I'm the developer and admin(the most overworked guy in our country , actually) in our company. This was really buggling my mind...

We have 2 static IP addresses, I only need to use one. Let's take as an example.

We have 2 domain names which will be using separate applications in Tomcat.

I have 2 contexts declared in Tomcat, first application will be named App1 and second will be named, App2. Each are accessed through localhost like the following as shown respectively...


The two domain names, and will have to point on each of those applications. -> ->

I chose 8080 since we will also be having apache web server running. So I'm a little worried setting up the IPTables (though I failed at doing this) to forward requests from port 80 to 8080...

I'm really not knowledgeable about all the web hosting or networking related stuff. I do have the basics though... Please help me how to do this, this is like setting up our own hosting provider... Whatever... Thanks!
