This solution works if you're front-ending with Apache-
I have seen CGI/Perl do this to specifically route incoming requests to CGI/Perl site 1 to
their folder
(and consequent access to site2 to Tomcat)

Symlink is terminal specific setting up term access to symbols representing another folder
Symlink is agnostic to which protocol is used to access port 8080 should route to Apache/Tomcat
in that order
with no proviso for security and 
consequent erroring by external programs that cant read a symlink (such as WinSCP)
