Same idea as PgBouncer or PgPool. The advantage over hacking
PgBouncer/PgPool for the job is that Tomcat can already do a lot
you want using built-in, pre-existing functionality. Connection pool
management, low level REST-style HTTP processing, JSON handling
all done for you.
Yeah, those are nice conveniences but I still think installing Java
and getting something to run on startup is a bit more of a hurdle.
Better maek life easier up front by having a simple standalone proxy
you can compile and run with just whatever is already available on a
typical AWS ubuntu environment.
If instead of Tomcat you use Jetty, you can embed the whole
app+Jetty+dependencies in a single executable JAR, which easies
deployment a lot. Installing a JVM in a Ubuntu environment is just one
apt-get and even easier if you use CloudFormation for automation. I
don't think is a bad choice at all... you get most of the functionality
you want already there, as Craig said, and it's lightweight.
Hope it helps,
