Is there a performance difference between installing an application on port 80 vs port 8080?  Or are the high ports strictly for security purposes.

OK, this is an intranet application using JBOSS as the web server and application server on same physical box.  JBOSS default install is on port 8080.  There will also be a load balancer sitting in front of the two app servers.  Just trying to figure out if installing on port 80 buys us anything besides not having to have the traffic redirected from port 80 to 8080.  Thanks for your feedback.

Ok, no you don't gain anything special by having it on port 80.  Performance and capabilities remain the same.
