Following up:
I have installed ofbiz since I don't need all this funcitionality. Then 
I mounted the ecommerce as per documentation:
Mounting a Root WebApp

It is often desirable to have one of the webapps mounted on the root. 
This is often either the ecommerce webapp or your own web site, which is 
created as a webapp in an OFBiz component would be setup the same way.

   1. To set the mount point to root (or "/") for a webapp, find the
      corresponding "webapp" tag in the appropriate ofbiz-component.xml
      file and change the "mount-point" attribute on that tag to equal "/".
   2. For the default OFBiz ecommerce webapp, this is found in the file:

${ofbiz install dir}/applications/ecommerce/ofbiz-component.xml

Now all the links in the point to the root without the hostname, for 
When the mount-point="ecommerce"  I get the on the main ecommerce page 
these links, which is correct:


Now when I set mount-point="/" then the links points to none existing pages:

What I am expecting is:


I am sure I missed something here.
