Subject RE: [J-T-C] Update: Building mod_jk for Apache 2.0/Windows
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2001 15:29:41 GMT
Here's an update on where I stand right now on building/running mod_jk for
Apache 2.0 beta 16.

I spent a considerable amount of time on the automake route.  Cygwin doesn't
include libtool by default so I had to download and build that.  I then ran
into an odd build problem that turned out to be caused by having installed
my new libtool stuff into a different directory then where automake was
already installed.  Once I fixed that I was able to run ./ and
./configure on Win2000/Cygwin.

This comes close to working, but still misses some things.  I don't know
enough yet about the autmake stuff to deal with this right now.  Maybe I'll
get back to it again later.

I then took a deeper look at the mod_jk.dsp file.  I discovered that some
hand edits a while back broke the file's structure.  Once I fixed those up I
was able to load the .dsp into Dev Studio.  Several of the include and
library paths have changed in 2.0 beta 16 so I had to fix those up.  I now
have an environment that builds mod_jk for apache 1.0 beta 16!  I'll commit
these changes later today.

Now I'm getting some odd behaviour when I use the module.  The request seems
to be forwarded to Tomcat and the response comes back, but it doesn't appear
in the browser.  I use telnet to issue the request I get back what looks
like a valid response.  I'll investigate this later today.
