I 'd like to know what does the "static resources" exactly mean?
html? css? javascripts? It's hard to google explanation of "static resources".

If HTML scripts are generated by servlet (there is no html files 
in my web app),will apache be a must?

Isn't there a Wiki somewhere?  This would be a really good topic for

Apache is better at CGI, and much faster serving static resources.  It's
one of those things where if you have to ask, you probably don't need
it. :)  As long as Tomcat does what you need, don't complicate your life
with Apache and the connector.
