The very first question is : do you use an Apache httpd front-end *only* 
in order to hide port 8080 ?
Because if that is the case, why don't you just have Tomcat listening to 
port 80 directly ? It can also serve static pages, not just JSPs or 
The fact that you are using a proxy setup to proxy "/" to Tomcat, makes 
me wonder.

Second question : are Apache httpd and Tomcat running on the same host ?
