Subject Re: Change Geronimo to use Tomcat JK 1.2.13 instead of the unsupported JK 2 ?
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2005 03:53:53 GMT
That version was used because the AJP needs the JkCoyoteHandler. 
Honestly, its being used because that seemed to be the latest and 
greatest at the time (IIRC we started with Tomcat 5.0.x)...and according 
to ibibilio, it looks like its the latest one they have for the Java 
side. AFAIK, it seems to work fine.  If we can find a better one, or 
this one does not work, then lets look into it.

Are you having any problems with it?
