Well, hold on...which platform are you on?

mod_jk doesn't use AddHandler, it has it's own directives, like "JkMount".
You can actually skip configuring httpd.conf except to add in a single
Include directive, like this:

Include /usr/local/tomcat/conf/auto/mod_jk.conf

and, with a properly configured tomcat, tomcat will create all the mod_jk
directives for you automatically on startup.  That's how it is setup on my
boxes, and it works beautifully.  I never change httpd.conf, just my tomcat

If you are on RH 7.2 or similar, you can check my HOWTO at  I'm updating it
right now, but it should get you started.
