If I have 2 sites hosted on the same Websphere box, how do I point requests to the correct index page?

Assume that I have 2 sites, abc.com and def.com, and they are hosted on the same Websphere 4.0 box.  The context roots will be /abc and /def, respectively.  When a person wants to view abc.com, how do I set it up so that they don't have to put the context root in the URL?  

For example, I don't want the user to have to type in 'http://www.abc.com/abc' in order to view abc.com.  

I know I could just have a slash for the context root of abc, but with multiple sites, I don't know how Websphere will differentiate.  

Thanks for any help!!

in your WebShpere config file you should have something like:

<websphere-sa-config>
 ....
   <web-application name="yourApp" action="update">
        <document-root>/path/to/your/document/root</document-root>

You may also change it in your WebShpere's Administration console, IIRC it's named "Web Application Path" there.

What is the name of the config file?  I would like to see the entire file to fully understand what is going on.  Thanks...
