Dear Edmon,

I think you've answered your own question ... mod_proxy is built into
Apache 2.2. I was about to use mod_jk and thanks to Gael who gave (the longer
and more complex) instructions for mod_jk but explained that the functionality 
I was after was provided by mod_proxy and built into Apache 2.2s; so, I just 
installed Apache 2.2 ... setting up the proxy worked first go just following 
the easy instructions in the docs. I can't say whether it's worth switching
if you already have a working mod_jk installation. All I can say is
setting up the proxy port for tomcat with mod_proxy was painless. 
Hope that's of some help.

  Greg Gamble
