Hello guys,
What are the benefits of using Apache web server in front of Tomcat in case all the content is DYNAMIC and all calls are thus forwarded to Tomcat?
Any Ideas? Should I just use Tomcat directly?
PS: Security is not a big concern.

Don't you use pictures or stylesheets?

Nope, no static pictures at least (and fully dynamic accordig to users data) this is not for web apps, mobile app.

I really need apache because we use a security plugin (Baltimore SelectAccess) that works with apache and not with tomcat. So that's our reason. It is much easier to setup tomcat standalone, so I would do that until you find a reason to change.

Thanks Annekee
Right now I am thinking of using it to distribute the load across a tomcat Farm. If Apache can also be clustered without a separate load balancer (hardware/software based) then it is fine (My other question).
If it can not, and requires a load balancer anyway, then I will use the load balancer to distribute the load to tomcat directly.
Any other thoughts ?
