Tomcat uses several ports. One of these is a standard HTML port that can be

DO NOT USE it in httpd!


If you want to serve tomcat content via your apache(httpd), you need to use
a connector (ie mod_jk) and specify the correct connector port in You can find the example for this in the mod_jk.conf in
the conf/extra subdirectory of your apache tree.

The ports of tomcat can be found in conf/server.xml in the tomcat tree.


You can also use mod_proxy to do this as well - depending on the frequency
of connections you may find that the mod_proxy solution is better 
- mod_jk isn't good at coping with network issues although this probably
isn't a problem in your case...
