Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-217) AJP client library and command line tools
Date Sat, 31 Mar 2018 10:35:00 GMT


Mark Thomas commented on COMDEV-217:

Sure. Tomcat has two wikis (we are very slowly moving content from one to the other). I suggest
you create a new page under:

Once you have created an account you'll need to ping the Tomcat dev list to get write access.

> 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.
