For starters, you could read

One question you might want to ask yourself is wether you REALLY
need Apache forwarding requests to Tomcat.  Doing so is MUCH slower
than having the clients (web browsers) talking to Tomcat directly using the
HTTP connector.  With a little planning before you develop your 
you can have Tomcat serve dynamic content on one IP address while Apache
serves static content on another IP address.

I am not saying that you should not use the connectors; there are many valid
reasons to use either mod_jk or mod_webapp to connect Apache to Tomcat.
I am just saying that you should evaluate your needs first.
