Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-217) AJP client library and command line tools
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2017 09:48:41 GMT
Mark Thomas created COMDEV-217:

             Summary: AJP client library and command line tools
                 Key: COMDEV-217
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: GSoC/Mentoring ideas
            Reporter: Mark Thomas

Apache Tomcat supports the AJP protocol for communication between reverse proxies (httpd,
IIS, etc) and Tomcat. It would be useful for various purposes (bug investigation, testing,
load testing, etc.) to have an wget/curl/ab etc. equivalent for AJP.

A good starting point exists in the Apache JMeter project. This task is to produce (probably
but not necessarily starting from the JMeter code):
- A Java library that provides AJP client functionality
- integrate that client with JMeter
- provide a command line wrapper for that client library

and then use the library to (stress) test Tomcat's AJP implementations, identify bugs and
provide patches for those bugs.
