Subject Re: Tomcat Standalone and Virtual Hosting

This partially depends on your OS.  If you're on windows, you can just run
tomcat on port 80.  If you're on unix, port 80 is privileged and you need to:
- Work around that, e.g. by using sudo or commons-launcher
- Put an Apache front-end to serve static content on port 80, and connect it to
tomcat for dynamic content.

Either tomcat or apache by themselves support virtual hosting.  For tomcat, you
simply add more <Host> elements in server.xml.  See the <Host> configuration
reference in the tomcat docs.
