If I understand you correctly, you want the Tomcat container to service your JSP/Serlvet requests, while letting the Apache web server to continue servicing all non-jsp/servlet requests. Well, the first thing I suggest you do is read the following documentation on the tomcat connectors(mod_jk, Jk2 deprecated). It is a module that provides a bridge between Apache and Tomcat. Certain requests based on url patterns are routed from Apache to Tomcat. This is assuming you are using specific versions of Apache and Tomcat. I would also google for other examples/tutorials of tomcat/apache/connector.

Good Luck.

The Jakarta Tomcat Connector

I hope this will help point you in the right direction.
I agree. Here's the link:
