Subject Tomcat Listener and file sockets
Date Mon, 28 Jul 2003 18:15:14 GMT

I have tried asking for this before (in vain)..but anyway ...

Can Tomcat listen (for AJP13 requests) on a file socket (AF_UNIX)
instead of the regular AF_INET socket ?

mod_jk2 allows configuration to specify the socket file. 
However no documentation (or anything in the Tomcat source code)
seems to support such configuration.

I hope that atleast somebody (whoever implemented AF_UNIX in mod_jk2)
must have tried out atleast once to get mod_jk2 talking to Tomcat via
AF_UNIX sockets.

Also there is a bug report #19917 on someone complaining about this not
in Tomcat 4.1.24. Woder if he had it working on an earlier version of

No docs on mod_jk2 side or Tomcat side talk about the Tomcat side
required. Looking some Java/Tomcat source code it didnt seem like there is
for AF_UNIX sockets in Java.

I am using tomcat 4.
