How to host a website on my PC

I have a Java web application running on my PC using a Tomcat server.  I also have a MySQL database that the application reads and writes to.  I am wondering how I can allow people to access my site if it is running on my PC. I think it has something to do with my router IP address but not sure what the specifics are.  Any advice an how to do this or where to read about it?

Well, difficult to know without your ISP and OS.
