The best way to make Servlets work "in Apache" is by using Tomcat and
mod_proxy_ajp.The "slowness" you are worried about doesn't happen,
even if Apache and Tomcat are on separate machines.

Googling turns up that some people have managed to run tomcat "in
process", but this aparently is lots of pain for no or little gain,
which explain why nobody really does it this way.
