    Don't let the name "JK2" to mislead you, it is really unsupported now.
    Tomcat connectors seem to have a history of being rewritten again and
    again. I think that things have settled now and there is active development
    going on original JK connector, they should soon release 1.2.14.

    JK2 used to have issues with large posts (they just didn't work). I wouldn't
    recommend using JK2 to anyone, we had such big problems with it on
    our projects. JK 1.2 series, however, works very well on our
    production sites.
