Tomcat Vs. Apache

I've got Tomcat setup to handle my servlets and jsp's. Apache is configured on port 80. Tomcat is configured on port 8080. I've been directing all my web traffic (which is hardly nobody) to tomcat and it's been working fine as the webserver. Is this okay, or should I integrate it with Apache?

Tomcat is also a webserver, it can work independently.

I realized that it is a webserver, but I was wondering if it was efficient or not. Should I put it with apache?
I agree. Here's the link:
