Easily make share the 'default' application in Tomcat

Normally you have a ROOT webapp in tomcat/webapps, which is a dummy Tomcat one.

To make this webapp redirect to i.e. alfresco share, when you type <server name>:<tomcat port> in your browser, but this in your tomcat/webapps/index.jsp file:

<%
response.sendRedirect("/share");
%>
 
If there is an index.html og index.htm file remove it.
 
Now index.jsp will redirect and you do not need to change the share-webapp 
 
Note: there is other ways using Tomcat context and stuff
