OK, fine -- but that's not what I want. I want exactly one virtual host
answering to exactly one domain name/ip request. If I have a machine
that binds to several different domain names and IPs, I only want Tomcat
to answer on ONE of those domain names. By default, it answers on all of

In a way, I want a valve or filter to complement the existing Remote
Address Filter and Remote Host Filter. While those check the source of
the request, I want a filter that checks the explicit destination of the
request, so that my application does not launch if the request did not
explicitly specify its destination.
Is this functionality already available? Is there a workaround?
