Hi,
There are so many good features are available in apache, those are beneficial for different
aspects:
1. Load balancing:
   User requests are processed by more than one server with all servers    sharing the load
'equally'
2. Transparent failover:
   User is not aware of a server crash. Transparent failover can be request level or session
level. Transparent failover can be achieved by clustering application servers. With clustering,
all the servers are the same and so the loss of a server does not interrupt the service. With
load balancing alone, the user has to login again when server crashes.
2. Caching static content:
   Apache gives support to cache static content from backend servers, It increases performance.
3. Server affinity (sticky session):
   With server affinity, multiple requests from a user are processed by the same server. This
is required for non clustered servers as the user session data is held on one server only
and all requests from that user have to go to the server which has the session data for the
user.

These are some important features provided by Apache,
There may be more.
Any way it's useful one. I got a great performance after using apache as a load balancer in
front of backend servers.

Narendra

Subject: [users@httpd] Apache HTTP Server and Tomcat Together


I have recently started working on a project that uses both Apache HTTP
server and Tomcat to host the JSP applications.  Basically all of the
requests hit the Apache HTTP server first and then they are routed to Tomcat
thanks to mod_jk.  In my case, only JSP applications are being hosted, so I
don't see the need for the Apache HTTP server.  What are some
advantages/disadvantages of integrating both of these together? Why not keep
it simple and use Tomcat only?
