From what I see, you want Apache(PHP) as a front end and Tomcat to execute Java? Just like those web hosting? If so look into mod_jk.

For example you have index.php and a java app called MyApp (which say maps to the URL "localhost/myapp"). Then when you type "localhost" will load up index.php then when you type "localhost/myapp" goes to Tomcat MyApp.

But first get Apache and Tomcat to work on their own first.

You could manually configure Apache to work with PHP, the steps are fairly simple. This page in the documentation tells you how:
Of course, the PHP installer will do the work for you, so you could uninstall PHP and reinstall it and select both IIS and Apache during the installation.
I agree. Here's the link:
