As far as I understand it, mod_webapp maps a complete web application 
(so the context path, eg /bla). If the settings for the web application 
are ok, mod_webapp will use these.
At this moment it isn't possible to let apache handle static-resources, 
the whole web application is served by tomcat.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong....
