Nuxeo Tomcat HTTPS Configuration - Why not recommended?

Hello,

I want to implement HTTPS in nuxeo, and I have been looking at this: https://doc.nuxeo.com/nxdoc/http-and-https-reverse-proxy-configuration/

Tomcat HTTPS Configuration seems to be very easy (I have experience configuring tomcat to serve via HTTPS), but I saw this message: “Configuring Tomcat in HTTPS is not recommended. Please follow instructions above to configure Apache server.

So my question is, why is it not recommended?

Thank you.

Tomcat is application server, Apache is made to serve static content. My guess is you will get a lot better performance from using Apache vs Tomcat. There is also a slight increase in difficulty configuring Tomcat for HTTPS (for those not familiar with the process). Just my thoughts on why they might recommend against it.
