The tools were different (openssl for apache, keytool for tomcat), but the
method should have been the same.  And the keys should be compatible, even
if you have to do some exporting and importing.  I haven't tried this
migration, yet, but I can't see any reason why it should not work fine.  If
you look at the Thawte site, they have instructions for migrating keys
between IIS and apache, for example.
