Redirecting nginx to Tomcat.

I've got a JRuby on Rails application which is deployed on a Tomcat server. My Http server of choice is nginx. I wanted nginx to redirect one of my domains to the JRuby application. The default port that Tomcat listens on is 8080.

The following nginx configuration snippet solves this problem:

server {
location / {

BTW, I never thought that my (basic) Russian language skills will be useful in my IT career. Most of the nginx related blog posts I found are in Russian language!
