Well the first question to ask is whether you really need an Apache 
front-end here.  You can have Tomcat listening directly on port 80 by 
just changing the corresponding HTTP <Connector port=....> in your 
And forget Apache and mod_jk in that case.

An Apache httpd+mod_jk front-end is justified if, apart from sending 
some specific requests to Tomcat webapps, you want to do some other 
things at the Apache level, that Tomcat cannot do as easily.  But if you 
are sending everything to Tomcat anyway, then I don't see the point.
