What's special? What is your concern? – Gleb Oct 31 '09 at 17:07

Tomcat 6 will work with the apache servers 1.3 or 2.x to run your tomcat site via regular http server port 80. Documentation on configuring the apache side and tomcat side can be found here:

Redhat Enterprise has the module ready to go in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/proxy_ajp.conf

In Debian, it involves the apache module enabler commands such as a2enmod or you can make the symlinks between enabled directory and available manually.
