This would make tomcat do all the crypting, which is quite a job for Java.

| apache with mod_ssl + connector(i.e. mod_jk) + tomcat

While this configuration will make a pure C compiled code (apache) do the
SSL'ing and serving of static webpages, while tomcat "only" serves the
active servlets and jsp's.

I don't have much experience with the two configurations, this is just a
"educated guess"..
