I have always used Apache + Tomcat via mod_jk. To inform Apache to not forward /recources to Tomcat, you simply put this in vhosts:

 SetEnvIf Request_URI "/resources/*" no-jk

How can you perform the same factor with mod_proxy. Whether it matters, I am while using bitnami tomcat stack and there's a tomcat.conf with:

<Location />
  ProxyPass ajp://localhost:8009/
</Location>

Will I change that in some way?

#<Location />
#  ProxyPass ajp://localhost:8009/
#</Location>

ProxyPass /resources !
ProxyPass / ajp://localhost:8009/
