Hi James , We use a "frontend" apache that "ProxyPass" es to backend tomcat . it is possible to configure N number of virtual hosts on frontend proxying to the backend .
It is also possible to use virtual hosting on both the servers (frontend apache) and backend (tomcat) , in that case you can keep ProxyPreserveHost On in case of apache. Such an arrangement helps in scaling as a light weight frontend server can be spawned in large number of processes or threads but not the heavyweight backend. it certain scenarios, such a setup helps in management of SSL certificates also. regds mallah.
