SSL CA - Apache vs Tomcat

Hi to all, I'm interesting to perform a test configuration of alfresco 4.2.c Communuty (on Ubuntu 12.04) via https using an SSL certificate signed by a CA ( I'm going to request a limited free test certificate ).
I read different articles, blog and forum posts about this possibility, and I know there are two main way to do this:
-Install directly the new certificates on Tomcat, not a very difficult operation, but this can create some issues using SOLR and other protocols such as SharePoint support. I try to explore the documentation about SOLR, but it is not very clear to me how to make it works with the new CA certificate.
-Install an 'Apache Proxy' and running Tomcat and Alfresco under Apache httpd.

Due to your experiences, what is the best solution? What is the more reliable configuration? The easier? And what do you advice for a possible production system?
Any tips?

Thaks to all.
