Run a php app using tomcat?


Is it possible to run a PHP app using tomcat?

Before you tell me to just use httpd, I already have a Java application running on my webserver at host/myapp. Now I want to install RoundCube at host/roundcube.

One is PHP and one is Java. I keep seeing offhand references saying this is possible but no real instructions. I do not want to put them on separate ports, I need the standard HTTP and HTTPS ports.

Does anyone have any resources for this?
