Hi Arun.
As asked, your question is difficult to understand, and even more to answer
I think.
What is exactly what should happen where ?
I'll give you a possible scenario, and you tell us if this scenario is what
you want to do, or tell us your own scenario, ok ?

first.  Apache does the authentication via LDAP (using for example
mod_authnz_ldap) for any URLs that are protected (including the ones that go
later to Tomcat).

Tomcat itself does not do authentication, but relies on the user-id passed
on by Apache (and the roles defined in Tomcat) to access the Tomcat
