If every single page in your site is a JSP, I've always thought that you
would have diminished performance if you added Apache?  Something I've
thought but never verified...  But Apache might be a good buffer between
lots of incoming connections and Java?

Anyway, if all you have is dynamic content (JSP and servlets), then you will
only suffer a performance hit on the provision of images and javascript
files.  For personal sites, I would run standalone.  It's less of a hassle
to configure and maintain.
