Access static file from apache to tomcat web applications

Hi,

I know that this is a Java forum, but still yiu guys can help me as I didn't got any answer in Apache forum. Hence please apologize.

I have my static files loaded in c:/apache/htdocs, I need to access that in my web application running in tomcat server.
For example

In c:/apache/htdocs, i have an images folder with static images which I am accessing in my web application

images
1.gif
2.jpg

In my web application i am accessing like
images/1.gif

But using the above I am unable to access the image from the Apache. Whether we need to integrate Apache & tomcat using
mod_jk, what are the other configuration we need to provide for this work?

In httpd.config I have added the below:-


<VirtualHost <IP address>:80>
DocumentRoot "c:/apache/htdocs"
/VirtualHost>

In tomcat web application I am accessing like:-
images/1.gif

When access the 1.gif in my webapplication that image is not displayed? Is there any other config I need to do in apache web server?

Thanks.
