Documentation is misleading for "ver" attribute in workers2.properties

           Summary: Documentation is misleading for "ver" attribute in
                    workers2.properties
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.1.24
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Connector:Coyote JK 2
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: crozierm@conducivetech.com


In the documentation for JK2, it suggests that in order for changes in the 
workers2.properties file to be recognized by mod_jk2, the value of the "ver" attribute for

the appropriate section must be changed. 
 
"Every time the config file is read, jk will check the version number in the component, 
and reconfigure if it is different." 
 
This suggests that the value doesn't need to be incremented, it merely needs to change 
ala BIND.  In fact, I remember some documention that said this more explicity.   The 
truth is that the value must actually be incremented, not just changed.  The code is in 
jk_config.c ~line 428 
 
It seems trivial, but my assumptions based on the documentation caused me a little 
headache yesterday until I realized my mistake.  If the documentation was a little more 
explicit ( "increment"), maybe another user won't make the same mistake. 
 
Thanks!
