I haven't looked at the docs for a while, perhaps they overemphasize
that and don't spend enough time discussing how to let apache server
static content.

I run a number of Apache/Tomcat production systems where Apache serves
all the static content and only requests for dynamic content (servlets/jsp)
are passed to Tomcat using mod_jk.
