I'm hosting a few sites on my Tomcat web server and right now I've written a script (in JavaScript) that redirects the user to the correct sub directory depending on the URL they gave. Does anyone know how I can do this in the Tomcat server.xml file? Thanks in advance.

What you want is known as virtual hosting. There are 2 ways to do it.
1. Give each site its own unique IP address/port combination
2. Use the hostname-based targer determination that is only supported by HTTP 1.1 clients and higher.
I'm afraid I haven't attempted to do this in standalone Tomcat, so I'd have to RTFM. Using Apache/Tomcat, I setup a standard Apache <VirtualHost> directive block and translate to a unique Tomcat context for each site.

I'll have to go with option 2. Thanks for the direction. I'll take a look through docs and Google groups.
