What do you mean by relation? Tomcat and Apache are two different servers...

1. Tomcat and Apache are both under Apache Software Management (www.apache.org)
2. Apache Httpd is a web-server coded in C/C++
3. Tomcat is a Java Servlet Engine and also could act as a web-server
4. Tomcat could serve JSP/Servlet behind an Apache web-server
