I have a Flex RIA solution served by a Php backend up and running.

Because of the growing needs for system admin, I would like to implement a GWT/Java solution for this.

It seems to be possible to have Apache and Tomcat serving the java parts using mod_jk.

Are there and drawbacks in such a setup? Performance? Security?

Regards / Jonas

No problem at all proxying Tomcat via an existing Apache httpd instance. You might want to look into mod_proxy- it's easier than mod_jk. You might also want to look at this article:

Thank you, Alex! I'll give mod_proxy a try! – Cambiata Aug 18 '10 at 22:14
