I agree that the docu about mod_jk2 is somewhat poor....

although I'm not happy with all defaults of mod_jk2, I think you can very simply get the base
connection to Tomcat up; we started with a simple how-to for NetWare, and later coned it for
Win32 (tehse are both typical binary consument platforms where admins usually do not have
such an insight as perhaps Unix admins):
if you look at the to ways we mentioned you can see that it's not so hard to get mod_jk2 up
than you might think...

f.e. if you rename this to
and put it into your apache2 conf dir then mod_jk2 will pick that up automatically without
further config, and you should already be able to browse Tomcat samples or docu though the

can this be more simple??
