I think that the reason behind this suggestion is that Apache HTTPD can serve static content faster than JBoss AS. However, now that you can use JBoss Native to add the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) to JBoss AS, you should be able to get the same performance from JBOss AS + APR as you got from Apache HTTPD for static content.

Of course, the other reason to front-end JBoss AS with Apache HTTPD is when you need to run JBoss AS in a cluster and you are using Apache HTTPD as a router.
