hi,
What is the use of connecting tomcat to apache. Tomcat runs the servlets, jsps and all webpages without using tomcat so is there any benifit of connecting apaceh to tomcat
thanks in advance

I used tomcat to run my servlets in a secure environment, away from prying eyes which might want to hack my tomcat (lord alone knows why they would, i've got c**p running on it anyway ;).
My Apache is my old-faithful web output for first rate, award winning static content provision.
I have also found that the Tomcat static file web server is not that great: It will server directory listings and so on, but the Apache one is much easier to configure and more powerful and I could never get an image over a certain size (forget what that was) to be served successfull; it would always screw up the data!
Hope this helps.
