Sun Java System Web Server 7.0: Virtual Host setup

Apologies if this is not the correct forum and for the naivety of the question. I have written a few java servlets to drive academic web applications, and inherited administration of the Linus box and Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 running on it. I know enough to mount the servlets but not much more. Hence my current dilema.

The server is aliased to an address of the type so that this takes you to the index page of the first servlet (sv1).
I have a new servlet currently running from and our support people have given me the alias which I would like to be able to direct to this new servlet. The support people suggest (over the phone) that I need to set up a new virtual server, but the Sun Server docs for this just tell you what fields have to be filled in, and give no examples that I can use as a template for my task.

I would greatly appreciate any pointers people may be able to provide. I can provide more detail if necessary.
