Can you describe what you need to accomplish without specifically
referring to Apache httpd or Apache Tomcat?

Something like:

"We have a Java web application that needs to authentication against
Microsoft AD server, and there are no other moving parts required
unless we need them to support this configuration."

The reason that I ask is that Tomcat (with some special support
libraries and configuration) can authenticate directly against
Microsoft AD and Apache httpd isn't necessary at all. If you /require/
Apache httpd to perform the authentication, then we can tell you how
to do that, too.
