I am trying to assess the impact my proposed changes in our environment. 
Maybe you should look up the thread, on this same list, entitled "Apache 
httpd vs Tomcat static content performance".

The first question you should be asking yourself is, if you only serve 
some static content + java stuff, do you need Apache httpd and mod_jk in 
front, or can you use just Tomcat directly as a httpd server ?
Tomcat and Apache are in many scenarios very close in performance when 
it comes to serving static content, and you would spare yourself some 
complication and overhead by using just Tomcat.

If you do need to use Apache httpd for some reason (and there may be 
valid reasons), then the overhead of mod_jk itself is probably not going 
to kill you.  It will add mere fractional milliseconds to the whole cycle.

There are a lot of threads on this list that discuss the same subject
