Subject Re: Deploying TOMCAT on live production server

It depends. One would argue that tomcat by itself is more secure because
1) Its only one thing to defend
2) Don't need to worry about any apache exploits

1) Apache has been hardened - its exploits are rare and when exposed are 
quickly fixed. (Tomcat's eploits are also quickly fixed too)
2) Apache can act as a barrier to prevent exploits from happening in tomcat 
(or exploits written into webapps)

IOW, different strokes for different folks.
