I don't consider it that painful. It's hardly a pain at all.
It involves adding an include to apache's httpd.conf. You still
have to do all the configuration stuff in tomcat anyway.
But I've heard from more than one that Tomcat is faster. So
there's that. But if security is an issue for you I have a hard
time believing that Tomcat is as secure as Apache.
