Small knit here -- when you omit the port number in your URLs, the
browser assumes port 80 for http and 443 for https protocols.  Most
modern browsers will also assume http protocol if you omit the http://
from the beginning of your urls as well.  You could configure a
connector in tomcat to listen on port 80 and eliminate Apache HTTPd all
together if you like.
