IIS server to redirect requests to Apache Tomcat


I have a requirement, here it is....

My domain name is , http://example.com hosted on IIS 6 on windows 2003 server and up and running fine. Now I would like to run confluence (Tomcat based application server) on windows 2003 server so the proxy requests to http://confluence.example.com would route to http://localhost:8080

Could some one suggest how to accomplish this?

The simplest way
You can set type of server or its virtual directory to "A rediration to a URL" and set value of "Redirect to" to   http://confluence.example.com 

In some page of your IIS server you can set redirection to Tomcat URL using methods specfic for technology you use for site content or meta tag in html page

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; url=http://confluence.example.com">

I dont think a redirection would work here. I am looking for a connector or proxy requests to be send through / from IIS server to backend Tomcat. How about confluence.example.com would redirect url to localhost:8080 , Is there anywhere I should explicitly tell that? Do I have to create a web site on IIS with named confluence.example.com (what directory should it points to)? Do I need a DNS entry for confluence.example.com? If so, would it points to IIS server host IP or a separate dedicated IP for confluence.example.com

there are many questions in mind, but dont know how to start this?
