Indeed I'm using Tomcat only. I ve two services. The default one is as it
has been released bundled with the tomcat installation package.

Then I ve defined another service with one connector (bound to 80 port)
and a new engine with an host on wich I run several context (one for every
of my application).

One of this web application is Roller. But is clear that doing so every
one could access to login page for administrative pages and I dislike

I don't know if I'm wrong in something or if yours is the only, and so the
correct, way to plan web application with presentation. By the way, I
would like to say, maybe do I have to switch to a different way to plan a
web service, deploying the logic of a web application running under an
application server and continuing to publish the presentation layer under
a web server? (Just as - I think -  you have stated)

I appreciate any criticism about this argument.
