Since Tomcat is a self-contained web server and servlet container, why would you want to do that?

Why cannot you use JSP and servlets for that? Mixing JSP, servlets, ASP and php is a recipe for a complete mess! Why do you feel you cannot create dynamic sites with JSP/servlets?

Tomcat can be connected to both The Apache Web Server and to Microsoft's IIS.
There is a page on the Tomcat site with instructions for the various connectors and all of their versions.
See:
http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/

What is it that you think you can do with ASP or PHP that you can't do with server side Java? In my experience being able to easily work with the vast number of libraries available in Java makes it a much more powerful alternative than either of the other two technologies you've mentioned.
