The application loading the images is the client's browser, not Tomcat.

Since you have Apache installed, you want your servlet to output HTML that
has an IMG tag with a SRC attribute in the Apache DocumentRoot.  The client
browser will resolve the URL (use a relative path like "images/new/some.jpg"
for portability) and make the request.  The request for the image will be
handled by Apache.
