I have to go right now, but I will answer this one quickly :

You do not have to use mod_jk as a connector between Apache and Tomcat.
There are two other ways :

1) use straight HTTP proxying, using the mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http 
Apache modules.  In that case, your target <Connector> in Tomcat is the 
standard HTTP one, like you did from the original Tomcat client.

2) use mod_proxy and mod_proxy_ajp.  In that case, the target is the 
same Connector as for mod_jk, and the protocol is also AJP.

With both the above, you can also use balancing.

Look up -> 2.2. documentation -> modules -> P for proxy
