hi,

yes, if you think about it, if you put your ssl key in apache, it will
be used to secure the comunication between apache(server) and the
client(user). Apache will then decript the message and forward it via
ajp into tomcat. If you want to put ssl on those comunications too, it's
a little more complex, and all you would be doing is adding security on
communications between two server applications running on the same
machine (is it worth it ?).

Of course you can innstall your certificate into tomcat, but if you are
using apache to front the tomcat, the reason to do so is hard to find.

hope it helps
