If you need to get it up and running fast, just use Tomcat with SSL.  You
can always add Apache later if you think it will boost performance.  Setting
up an Apache+SSL+Tomcat server can be tricky if you are a newbie (and even
if you aren't).

A lot of this depends on what you are running and how heavy the demands on
the server will be.

If you have a lot of static pages (and maybe even if you don't) Apache with
SSL and Tomcat may be faster.  In that setup you use Apache to do the SSL,
which is theoretically faster because it is a binary on the server.  In
reality the extra overhead of the transfer from Apache to Tomcat of dynamic
pages may nullify any speed advantages.
