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 ?

My scenario :
Your configuration is such that all HTTP (browser) accesses go to Apache 
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).
Than Apache decides which calls go to Tomcat (via a mod_jk connector or 
mod_jk (and the Tomcat side of that connector) is configured so that the 
Apache authentication is passed on 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 applications.

re :
re : Tomcat Connector, attribute "tomcatAuthentication" or something 
like that.
