Virtual Hosting with Apache Tomcat

I don't know if this is the thing I've been looking for... But this looks promising to me. My company wants to host multiple applications on a single server. However, our hosting provider won't give us any support for Tomcat. What we need actually is like this

www.mysite1.com points to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080/application1

With the lack of experience to do this, I'm really starting to get frustrated. While browsing the forums at Javaranch, I encountered the term virtual hosting with Tomcat. Hmmmm... Rings a bell! So I googled and bumped into these two interesting sites:

http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc-archive/jk2/jk2/vhosthowto.html
http://www.ex-parrot.com/~pete/tomcat-vhost.html

I haven't tried these yet. But I hope this works for me.
