Subject Re: jk/jk2 - time for apr
Date Wed, 15 Oct 2003 14:05:46 GMT
+1 to have a version of mod_jk rewritten to use APR for all OS stuff

It would be best to use the version of APR which is distributed with
the current Apache 2 release so that there are no conflicts when using
mod_jk with Apache 2.

Requiring APR would allow using a global connection pool for the socket
connections to Tomcat.  And allow more sophisticated load balancing when
you can have access to global information about how each pool of connectors
to Tomcat is performing.

If this involves significant changes to the code we might want to bump
the major version to jk3.

We will still need at least one more release of mod_jk 1.2 for the
minor changes committed since the 1.2.5 release.
