This is the story I was told.

In old days, Tomcat was a "JSP/Servlet Container" - interpreting JSP/Servlet
pages faster than it did for static html. So people chose Apache to load
HTML pages and redirected requests of JSP/Servlet to Tomcat. Now Tomcat
claims to be as fast as Apache in terms of interpreting HTMLs.

Subject: Tomcat and Apache

Hi, I have a simple question to ask. Why most of the people use Apache
like the web server running in front of Tomcat? Would it be better to
map tomcat on port 80? What is the plus value of having the apache web
server in front?
Is it only to have access to perl or php?
