  +differs from the file generated by Tomcat 3.2.x.  In Tomcat 3.3, the default
  +is to forward all requests to Tomcat for Tomcat's contexts (i.e.
  +forwardAll="true"), excluding the root context.  This helps insure
  +that behavior configured in web.xml files will function properly.
  +The configuration that best matches Tomcat 3.2.x behavior is:
  +<pre>&lt;ApacheConfig forwardAll="false" noRoot="false"
  +        jkConfig="conf/mod_jk.conf-auto" jkDebug="error" /&gt;</pre>
  +With this configuration, JSP and servlet requests to the root context
  +will be served from Tomcat's ROOT webapp.  Other requests, such as for static
  +files, will be served from Apache's DocumentRoot directory.  If Apache's
  +DocumentRoot isn't updated to point to Tomcat's ROOT webapp, then the
  +root context will malfunction.  For example, JSP's that reference ".gif"
  +files in Tomcat's ROOT webapp will not be able to display them since
  +they won't be found under Apache's DocumentRoot directory.</p>
