Perlbal is a reverse-proxy HTTP server, so it can load balance
anything that can talk HTTP (including tomcat.) mod_jk uses the AJP
protocol, which is a binary protocol on the wire (presumably for
speed.) So you can use Perlbal to front-end a Tomcat instance
running over HTTP, but you can't use Perlbal to talk AJP to Tomcat.

I think someone already sent a sample configuration.
