Well the Coyote connector for one definitely has compression available
and compresses content nicely, even dynamic content. I'm not sure of
the specifics of the caching mechanisms used internally to Tomcat but
it achieves caching nicely giving 304 not modified responses where
applicable and often the browser will cache the static content so a
request isn't even made.
