That's not really an "or" situation.  Depending on your circumstances, it may or may not provide
better performance (also dependent on what you happen to mean by "performance").  You never
need to write code to take advantage of it.

Look here:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/http.html#Connector%20Comparison

> Will it provide better performance for SSL connectors?  

Pretty much always.
