Help needed on SSL configuration

I have configured two
5.5.9 server and an Apache HTTP server 2.2.10 for tomcat clustering. It is working fine. I need to configure SSL.
My questions are:-
1) Should I need to configure SSL only on Apache HTTP server or only on Tomcat server or Apache HTTP server and Tomcat server both?
2) How to configure?
3) Is clustering can be done without Apache HTTP server and only with Tomcat?
Please give some idea.............
Thanks in advance..........................

I'd set up Apache to terminate the SSL connection, so that the Tomcat only sees HTTP. If the web app needs to know whether a request came in over HTTPS or not, then there's an HTTP header Apache can set to indicate that.
Tomcat can do clustering; see
I wouldn't cluster more than 5 Tomcats; there's a noticeable performance impact.
I agree. Here's the link:
