Well, there is a possible explanation :-)

The static interceptor ( which serves static files ) was never tuned or
optimized. It probably does multiple accesses to disk, while in
Apache there are a number of low-level optimizations, caching, etc.

I am not very interested in spending time tuning the StaticInterceptor - I
would rather spend the same time making sure setting up Tomcat + Apache is
as easy as possible, and just let Apache do what it's designed to (
serve static files ) and tomcat do it's job ( servlets + jsp ) :-) 
For "real" production servers I hope you'll use Apache, and for embeding
tomcat in apps or development you don't need 500 requests per seconde.

Feel welcome to contribute any code that would improve the performance,
or use apache for static files :-)
