Right now I have Apache and Tomcat running on the same server. For reasons I won't go into I'm experimenting with putting Apache on a separate server, and installing Tomcat on multiple back-end servers. This isn't a load-balancing scenario as each Tomcat container on the back-end servers will be providing a separate application/responding to a different url.
In a typical setup (everything on one box) the configuration file (we use workers.properties)sets what appears to be parameters such as the location of tomcat and Java. For example, here is the current output of workers.properties:
Do I need the content in red? If so, can I point those values to installations on another server, or do I need to actually install Tomcat and Java on the Apache server still? That seems silly since I'm trying to separate them, but I'm just not sure.
