It realley depends if it's fine with you to run Tomcat as root
You have three possibilities:
- if you don't care about running Tomcat as root and don't already
have apache listening on port 80, change the port and start Tomcat as
- if you prefer to run Tomcat as a non-priviled user (listening on
port 8080) and have apache, use mod_jk and configure tomcat and apache
accordingly (see doc on tomcat web site): your users will connect to
port 80
- if you prefer to run Tomcat as a non-priviliged user (listening on
port 8080) and you don't have apache, redirect requests made on port
80 to port 8080 using iptables.
