I think you should have a look into Tomcat User's guide, "Configuring Virtual
Hosting" section, as it explains how this is done. I'm not 100% any more if
virtual hosting has been improved in any way in the 3.2.x series over what't
described in the manual, but I can tell you for sure that 3.3.x series has
excellent virtual hosting support (i.e. I recommend it). The preferred way is to
have separate configuration files for different vitual hosts/applications.

For instance, this file (which has to be named apps-*.xml)

----------------------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<Server>
  <Host name="www.somehost.domain" >
    <Context path="/" docBase="/var/www/html/somehost.domain" />
  </Host>
</Server>
----------------------------------------------

configures one such virual host/application pair in Tomcat 3.3.x. One can,
obviously, configure more then one context.

Your Apache configuration would have to match. For instance:

----------------------------------------------
<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:80>

#  General setup for the virtual host
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/somehost.domain"
ServerName www.somehost.domain
ServerAdmin webmaster@somehost.domain

</VirtualHost>
----------------------------------------------

This is, of course, if you mix static files with Tomcat files (I use Velocity
templates, which I also recommend :-) in the same directory. Otherwise, they can
be located in totally different places.
