I would like to hook tomcat with apache using the mod_webapp connector. I could not find any documentation on that. Could someone point me to the right direction? Thanks in advance.

INSTALLING mod_webapp is easy. CONFIGURING it is the pain, because as near as I can tell, they've completely changes the directives 3 times and updated the documentation at most twice.
Anyway, mod_webapp goes in the same directory as all your other Apache modules. In RedHat 7, that's /etc/httpd/modules (alias /usr/lib/apache).
I looked at my config files and all I saw were commented-out failures. I'd even looked at the mod_webapp source code! I did a quick search and found some complaining that mod_webapp doesn't work under win98. Very discouraging.
On the bright side, the Jakarta site has an interesting alternative - use the Apache proxy module to redirect the request to Tomcat's main http port!

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
