Apache HTTP Server / Jakarta Tomcat
Hi - I'm a newbie on this list so please go easy on me
I've been using the HTTP Server provided by Apache for some time now and I've never really had to configure it far beyond a couple of virtual hosts.
As a web and occasional Java developer I'm keen to get to grips with JSP. As such I've just bought a copy of JavaServer Pages (O'Reilly), which recommends using Jakarta Tomcat provided by Apache.
My question is how do the two (HTTP Server - Jakarta Tomcat) relate? Is Tomcat a replacement for the HTTP server or do I need to run both side-by-side? Does the HTTP Server alone provide JSP support? Will my Perl and PHP scripts continue to run using Tomcat?
Any assistance you can provide (including links to relevant posts/articles) would be greatly appreciated.

Very simple is the answer, more difficult is connecting Apache/Tomcat
Tomcat is a servlet engine, it processes JSP/Servlets and html files....
Apache is the web server. It is better to use Apache/Tomcat in bundle because Apache processes html files faster end in a more efficient way, Tomcat supports JSP/Servlets workloads.
The connection is made by the "connector". (There are various versions)
