Keep in mind that the performance boost you get from having httpd 
serving static files instead of Tomcat will be small, perhaps not even 
measurable depending on the details of your configuration and application.

Having httpd as a load balancer is a good use of it, but having it serve 
all your static files as a performance booster, not so much.
