Well documented is the crux here for me. Or at least readily 
understandable. I've just had someone nearly abandon Tomcat altogether 
because they had a problem (with file uploads) that required the latest 
version of the IIS connector but they couldn't find out how to configure it.

I find it frustrating that we're an Apache project but we're currently 
nowhere near Apache in usability terms. Right now running Tomcat with 
another webserver is a scary proposition.

All the JK code has to do is forward eligible requests from the host web 
server to Tomcat. I'm afraid that right now it behaves like a self 
indulgent vanity project with aspirations above its station. With 
appropriate apologies for the toes that I'm treading on why tge hell is 
JK so convoluted?
