Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache + Tomcat = no session management
Date Tue, 23 Jan 2007 21:30:44 GMT

    Thanks for replying to my query.  I don't really know anything about 
Apache.  How would I go about determining how Apache and Tomcat 
interact?  I have the httpd.conf file for the Apache in question, can  
I  tell from that? 

    I have looked through the file and I do not see mod_jk being loaded 
so I think we can rule out that.

    I see the lines below in httpd.conf does this mean communication is  
via HTTPProxy? (our app is OBISDEV)
    ProxyPass /OBISBETA http://localhost:8082/OBISDEV
    ProxyPassReverse /OBISBETA localhost:8082/OBISDEV

    I'm sorry to be so clueless but I have absolutely no experience with 

    Thanks again for trying to help,
