Subject Re: Invitation to HTTPD commiters in tomcat-dev

One of the big advantages of using a connector from Apache to Tomcat
is so that Apache can do what it does best, serve static content.
And Tomcat can do what it does best, handling requests for servlets/JSP
dynamice content passed to it from Apache.

Another advantage is that apache can act as a load balancer for
multiple Tomcat application servers.

Glenn
