Yes, but you'll have to decide under which part of your Apache site
you'll show your Tomcat pages.  The trick is to install mod_jk to
connect from Apache to Tomcat (and make sure you've got a JK connector
enabled in Tomcat).  Then you can map part or all of the Tomcat URL
space into a virtual directory under Apache.  JK is independent of
Tomcat's HTTP connector so, if you wish, you can even remove Tomcat's
connector on port 8080 once you've done this - the Apache <=> JK <=>
Tomcat route becomes the only route through which you can access Tomcat.
