Since Tomcat is application server, link Tomcat to Apache server(or any other server). In Apache server enable SSL using OpenSSL and ModSSL. Hence u can access with https

That's not true. We at our project in office use Tomcat with SSL. We don't need Apache. How to set this up, I don't know however, because someone else on our project did this.

Follow the instructions in conf/server.xml
It worked first time for me.

        <!--
            Uncomment this for SSL support.
            You _need_ to set up a server certificate if you want this
            to work, and you need JSSE.
            1. Add JSSE jars to CLASSPATH
            2. Edit java.home/jre/lib/security/java.security
               Add:
               security.provider.2=com.sun.net.ssl.internal.ssl.Provider
            3. Do: keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA
               RSA is essential to work with Netscape and IIS.
               Use "changeit" as password. ( or add keypass attribute )
               You don't need to sign the certificate.

            You can set parameter keystore and keypass if you want
            to change the default ( user.home/.keystore with changeit )
         -->
        <Connector className="org.apache.tomcat.service.PoolTcpConnector">
            <Parameter name="handler"
                value="org.apache.tomcat.service.http.HttpConnectionHandler"/>
            <Parameter name="port"
                value="443"/>
            <Parameter name="socketFactory"
                value="org.apache.tomcat.net.SSLSocketFactory" />
        </Connector>
