Don't know if this is your problem, but if you do any JkMount's in the 
main Apache configuration, they are not copied by default to the Vhosts. 
You need to use the JkMountCopy directive.

Note something else :
- with your Alias above, and in the absence of any later filtering, you 
are giving users access to your entire webapp directory via Apache, 
including the WEB-INF directory etc..
- that Alias is not normally necessary, unless you want to serve some 
static content with Apache
- the way the JkMount is written, it is only the files "within" the /dir 
directory that are being re-directed, not a request for "/dir" itself. 
Don't know if it matters, but if you have some index script in there, it 
You may want to add a "JkMount /dir w_worker" otherwise.
