  1. Introduction
     This document is intended to get you started using Tomcat with
     Apache until we have Apache and Tomcat as one integrated
     release. If you ran into any gotchas while following these
     instructions, please let us know so we can keep this document
     In the rest of the document, we use /path/to/apache-1.3.9 to mean
     the path to the Apache 1.3.9 installation and /path/to/tomcat1.0r1
     to mean the path to the Tomcat 1.0 R1 installation. We will assume
     you are running Apache on the default port (80). 
  2. Installation
     2.1 Apache 1.3.9 
         * Download and install the Apache 1.3.9 binary for your
           platform from 
         * Configure the default HTTP listener port in your
           /path/to/apache-1.3.9/conf/httpd.conf file.
         * Make sure ServerName in /path/to/apache-1.3.9/conf/httpd.conf
           contains the name of your host.
     2.2 Tomcat v1.0 R1
         * Download and install Tomcat v1.0 R1 for your OS/platform from
         * Download mod_jserv for your platform from <os>/<platform>/modules
           and copy it into /path/to/apache-1.3.9/modules.
         * Edit /path/to/apache-1.3.9/conf/httpd.conf and add the
           following line at the end:
             Include /path/to/tomcat1.0r1/etc/tomcat.conf
     2.3 Testing Your Configuration
         * Restart Apache (apachectl restart or Apache -k restart on Win32)
         * Make sure http://<hostname> is working
         * Try http://<hostname>/examples -- you should see the Tomcat
     2.3 Adding Contexts
         There's two different ways you can add contexts to this
  	    * Add to /path/to/tomcat1.0r1/etc/tomcat.conf: 
  	    	    ApJservMount /<context> /root
  	    * restart Apache. 
  	    * Create /path/to/apache-1.3.9/htdocs/<context>
  	    * Install all the files of that context into that
  	    * Make sure /path/to/tomcat1.0r1/server.xml points to
  	    * Add to /path/to/tomcat1.0r1/etc/tomcat.conf:
  	      ApJservMount /<context>/servlet /root 
  	      <Location /CONTEXT/WEB-INF/ >
  	           AllowOverride None
  		   deny from all
  3. Tested Configurations
     Apache 1.3.9 + Tomcat 1.0 R1 has been tested on the following OSes: 
      * Linux (RedHat 6.1) on SPARC and Intel
      * Solaris 2.6 on SPARC
      * Windows NT SP 4
