Just making sure you didn't mistype: did you mean route traffic from
https://domain.com:8443 to https://domain.com?

If you really meant http://domain.com:8443 -> https://domain.com then
it's easy to set up a redirect by simply doing:

response.sendRedirect("https://domain.com" + request.getRequestURI());

I suspect you meant that you wanted to use the default port of 443 for
HTTPS traffic once you have a legit, signed certificate from a CA. See
Mark's and Pid's responses for how to do that. The best resource is
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/ssl-howto.html

If you are on a *NIX platform, I highly recommend using 'jsvc' (it
allows non-root use of ports lower than 1025) which is available as
source code in your Tomcat distribution as bin/jsvc.tar.gz.
