When requesting a jsp are you using a port request?

Apache by default is set up on port 80 (the default port for all webservers)
i.e. http://localhost
Tomcat is set up for requests to come on port 8080
i.e. http://localhost:8080
I'm sure you could configure TC to take requests on port 80
TC comes with it's own webserver so there is no "Need" for an apache install
but there are many features inherent witha full apache install that are not
present with TC's webserver
