i'm not sure this answers the question.  i am also interested in this.
let me draw a picture:

client <- talks on 443 ssl to -> apache <- talks ??? on port 8009 -> tomcat

the problem being that if the webser gets encrypted stuff and then
passes it to tomcat in the clear, someone could get the unencrypted
info from the second conversation.
