At which point is Port 8009 (defined in workers.properties) is used?

GURU's correct me if I am wrong. Here is what I think:

1) User request jsp page via http://localhost/login.jsp

2) Apache sees that it is JSP/Servlet, and OPENS PORT 8009 for TOMCAT to handle that.

3)Tomcat recives that via 8009 and executes it in PORT 8080

Please coeerct me if I am wrong. If there is any better way then above -then please elaborate.

Well, basically your thoughts are quite correct, except for point 3.

Tomcat indeeed receives the "package" from Apache through port 8009, but the result is sent back to apache that takes care of sending the response back to the browser.

When you use Tomcat behind Apache, through port 8009 (or whatever has been configured), you can completely disable Tomcat's HTTP Connectors on port 8080.

This because the HTTP connections are not handled by Tomcat but by Apache.
