Right, both mod_jk and proxy_ajp have almost the same performance,
and they are up to twice as fast compared with http mostly because
of constant connection pool. AJP protocol gives it's share too
by transferring less data across the wire.

If you are using Apache 2.1+ there is no need to use mod_jk and
maintain additional module.
