While I can't correct you or state you are correct, however I believe 
you have steps 1 and 2 correct. Step 3 appears incorrect.

Step 3 may not even take place, but I could be wrong. My guess is that 
once Apache and Tomcat have a channel open at 8009, Tomcat processes the 
JSP/Servlet request and returns to Apache an HTML (or other desired 
content type) response to complete the client request.

This question is better asked on the Tomcat-User list(see for more information).
