How do you setup a single tomcat instance so that, for example, www.domainname1.com goes to webapp A, and www.domainname2.com goes to webapp B ?

Thanks in advance.

Use multiple Host elements with the Engine element in server.xml

Note:  One of the Hosts listed must match the defaultHost

For example:

    <Engine name="Standalone" defaultHost="localhost" debug="0">
      <Host name="localhost" debug="0" appBase="webapps"
            unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">
        <Context path="" docBase="ROOT" debug="0"/>

      <Host name="www.domainname1.com" appBase="/home/app1/webapp">
        <Context path="" docBase="."/>

      <Host name="www.domainname2.com" appBase="/home/app2/webapp">
        <Context path="" docBase="."/>
