Subject RE: [PROPOSAL AJP14] AJP13 Evolution - Second Pass
Date Thu, 10 May 2001 20:32:44 GMT
The evolution will goes in jakarta-tomcat-connectors to avoid
disturbing mod_jk/ajp13 in the to be released TC 3.3. 
Of course all bugs fixes from TC 3.3 mod_jk will be back ported to 

The auto-update will not be my premium priority and I think to
delay it since it will add too much complexity for a first try. 

On the native part, I'll need help for autoconf stuff and the 
JServ like JVM start. Jon could you help us here since you were
on it on JServ ?

I'd like to see someone take a look at APR, and how we could use it. 
May be by adding some wrapper code to avoid having #ifde USE_APR sprayed
in all mod_jk. 

Volunteers ?

On the C side code, all help will be welcome. I'm confident with the
code but all help is also welcome (toc toc toc Dan). 
May be via review of the regular code commit.
I'm pleased to see the proposal was actively discussed and since many 
users ask about integration of mod_jk and mod_webapp, I reiterate here 
my invitation to Pier.

May be Kevin could help also and could commit it's AJP13 in

AJP14 will be only available to TC 3.3/4.0 since the 3.2 is closed
to new features. But did the AJP12/AJP13 in jakarta-tomcat-connectors will 
contains code for tomcat 3.2 tree also ?
