We have to be able to run on Windows, so won't be able to use symlink.

I'm going to take a look at mod_rewrite suggested by Mladen.

cheers,

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)

Caveat Emptor-
