There are many ways to do this, but probably the easiest is to use apache's mod_proxy.

Assuming that your Tomcat listens on port 8080 and that you want to give access to Tomcat's /application URI, then you need to add the following snippet to your apache's configuration (or virtualhost configuration, depending on your specific goal). What this will do is for every HTTP request to /application/somethingorother to your web server, apache will turn around and forward the request to tomcat (that's the proxypass part). It will then parse the resulting answer, and replace any mention of tomcat in the header and replace it with its own URL and host name, so that the end-client does not know a proxy is in the loop (this is the ProxyPassReverse part).

More complicated (but probably more performing) would be to install mod_jk which is another language Tomcat can speak which has lower overheads than HTTP.

Let me know how it goes,
hope this helps.

ProxyPass /application http://localhost:8080/application
ProxyPassReverse /application http://localhost:8080/application
