Apache is a generic Web server, it know nothing about Java, servlets, JSP or any of the other server coding languages (PHP, ASP, Coldfusion etc.). To enable an Apache server to serve any of these languages, you need to extend the Apache server with a plugin appropriate to the language.
Tomcat can be used as one such plugin, as can Resin, JRun and many others. These plug-in "servlet containers" can also usually be drun on their own, so if your site is all Java (servlets/JSP) or static files, then you can forget about Apache and just use Tomcat or Resin (say) as the only web server.
