Oh! Okay... what do your JkMount lines look like in Tomcat? You might 
just be missign a directive to forward *.html to Tomcat's worker.

I've never used the WebApp connector... do you know what file types (or 
URI patterns) it maps for Apache? I know that using Jk, you need a 
JkMount directive for each URI pattern you want to use. Thus, you'd need 
to specifically put "JkMount /examples/*.html tomcat-worker" in there, 
unless you already had something like JkMount /examples/* tomcat-worker".

Good point, but eventually you'll have better performance letting Apache 
serve all your static content. In fact, at this point, Apache is just a 
hinderance for you, since you're not actually using it. Why not use 
Tomcat standalone to play with the examples?

I guess that's besides the point. Someone else on the list will have to 
help you with the WebApp connector; sorry for my ignorance.
