Subject cvs commit: jakarta-tomcat-connectors/jk/xdocs/jk2 configweb.xml

  Modified:    jk/xdocs/jk2 configweb.xml
  Added a section on server-specific config ( httpd.conf ).
  Added a small note on the config generator (I'll expand it later, I hope ).
  I'm very bad with writing docs - if someone can translate this
  stuff in english I would apreciate it :-)

  +<p>Since the config is abstracted, some servers ( Apache2 only at this moment ) may
support a 
  +server-specific configuration mode. This configuration mode is less tested - but provides
  +unique advantages (and disadvantages )</p>
  +<p>I'll describe the apache2 specifics, since this is the only one implemented. In
this mode the
  +config will be included in httpd.conf. The JkSet top-level directive is used to set global
  +config options, and JkUriSet is used to set options for Location sections</p>
  +<p>You can mix and JkUriSet - for example workers and global
  +can be set in, but all uri properties in httpd.conf. Some people 
  +might preffer to have only one config file and use httpd.conf for all configuration.</p>
  +<p>Each Location that has a JkUriSet will automatically create a jk2 [uri] object,
  +using the Location path and the vhost. All JkUriSet directives will set attributes
  +in this [uri] object, exactly like properties in a ini file section</p>
  +<p>The biggest benefit is that Apache2 mapping is used instead of jk2 to detect the
  +requests that need to be sent to tomcat. Apache2 has been optimized and tuned to
  +server huge number of servers and uris - if you have only few the diference may be
  +hard to notice. Some people preffer to use the httpd.conf format and some tools 
  +could be better used in this mode.</p>
  +<p>One major problem is that reconfiguration is not supported if httpd.conf is used.

  +You can still enable/disable/add workers if you use, and 
  +you could add or change uri properties in that file. </p>
  +    <section name="Config generators">
  +<p>There is work in progress to support automatic generation of the config file.
The code is
  +included in org.apache.jk.config and consist of a number of ant tasks ( that work from
CLI as well)
  + that process web.xml files and generate or server-specific config files</p>
