I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you want Tomcat to serve all requests for the domain, you can follow these instructions for Apache 1.3 and 2.0.

If you want Tomcat to serve only some requests for the domain, say only .jsp requests you can use mod_jk.
With modern tomcat mod_proxy_ajp is included.
You do not need to REWRITE, you need to turn apache into reverse proxy. (see ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse in your documentation)
