what is the best way to forward all requests from port 80 to port 443 on an apache server (with tomcat behind it)?

my site basically gets accessed like this https://site.com/site
but i need to give users the ability to just type site.com or www.site.com and have it redirect to https://site.com/site

thanks

Here's what I was using.  Note that it forces Everything to HTTPS.
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.
RewriteRule ^ https://www.site.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301]

RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^ https://www.site.com%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

Another way would be the firewall, forward port 80 to 443. The advantage(?): does not enforce https and can be used from any to any port:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 443

You can use Mod_jk for the redirection from apache to tomcat and vise-versa,

Mod_JK will cover the tomcat for security reason too.

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerAlias qwer.ty
  Redirect permanent / https://qwer.ty/ (probably temporary ipo permanent for testing)
</VirtualHost>
