[opencms-dev] Apache httpd in front of Tomcat in 2010, yes or no?

We still also find a performance advantage by serving the static export
resource with Apache from the file system and not through the container.

We have other virtual hosts that do not run under tomcat. Hence, where I
work, we do need an independent web server. I dont see any major problems
with what you have done, but I love our set up of being able to handle all
http requests via apache web server.

I would like to get some opinions if people think it is still state of the
art to put a regular Apache httpd in front of e.g. tomcat,
for removing the /opencms prefix and serving of static files.

Recently I set up some servers without apache httpd, just using a bare
tomcat6. I removed /opencms with this method


Now for me everything works fine, and I also do not see any performance
issues (although I have to say the sites are low-traffic).

What do you think? What are your good reasons for sticking with an httpd in
front of tomcat?
