Donwgrading and using mod_webapp is the WORST thing you could do, for all 
sorts of reasons.  Security, for one.  Performance, for another.  Future 
extensibility and growth, for another.

Mod_jk and mod_jk2 work.  This is a fact.  There's nothing anyone can do if 
you want to give up learning how they work and use something else instead, 
but the truth is they work, and not just on someone's desktop.  Many, many 
people are using Tomcat and a connector under heavy load in production on a 
daily basis (I'm one of them and there are many more).  Load balancing, 
multiple instances, all sorts of advanced configurations.  If you want to 
take the time to learn how things work, and why they work that way (Tomcat 
MUST obey the servlet spec, there is no alternative), then you can get your 
answers and have a robust, stable system.  Its a personal choice.  Good
