   <section name="Are there alternative ways to connect Apache and Tomcat&#63;">
  -The alternative ways are better described in <b>mod_webapp</b>
  +<b>Tomcat's internal HTTP stack and mod_proxy</b> which is not that bad, but
  +well, of course Tomcat didn't have 10/11 years of C routine optimization like
  +the Apache Web Server, but it's quite good. The only disadvantage is that it
  +looks pretty ridiculous to parse an HTTP request to generate it again
  +(exactly the same), and to parse again the response to send it back unchanged...
  -Check <b>webapp</b> site for it and then decide if you want to go on reading.

  -The big advantage of <b>mod_webapp</b> is that is very easy to configure,
  -has a well defined protocol named <b>WARP</b>, does not care about the old
  -crappy protocols used in Tomcat-3.x and so.
  -But it would be possible to implement the <b>WARP</b> protocol in
  +<a href="">mod_webapp</a> which
is very easy to configure, has a well defined protocol named
  +<a href="">WARP</a>
but it is no longer developped.
  +BTW: It would be possible to implement the <b>WARP</b> protocol in
   <b>JK2</b> ;-))
  -The disadvantage is that it requires the <b>Apache Portable Runtime</b>
  -which is still only easily available via Apache 2.0 and that it didn't support
  -webservers like IIS, NES/iPlanet or Domino.
