I am new to Tomcat but have worked with IIS for several years. In IIS I use host headers to have multiple sites on one IP address. Is there a way to accomplish this in Apache Tomcat 4?

Welcome to wmw

I'm not sure if this still applies to Tomcat 4 (probably does) but in v3 you could use virtual hosts in the same way as regular Apache, by putting something similar to this in your httpd.conf file:

NameVirtualHost 10.0.0.1

<virtualhost 10.0.0.1>
DocumentRoot /home/www/whatever
ServerName www.example.com
</virtualhost>

That would set Apache to serve up files from /home/www/whatever in response to requests to www.example/com on IP 10.0.0.1

You could then put the extra Tomcat configuration directives (eg ApJServMount) within <virtualhost></virtualhost> to enable jsp on that site.
