Date Thu, 16 Dec 2010 15:51:58 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Tomcat Wiki" for change notification.

The "FAQ/Connectors" page has been changed by PidSter.
The comment on this change is: mod_proxy supports sticky sessions.
http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FAQ/Connectors?action=diff&rev1=12&rev2=13

--------------------------------------------------

   * Stay away from mod_webapp, aka warp. It is deprecated and unsupported due to lack of
developer interest and there are better options such as jk and mod_proxy. It WILL NOT run
on windows. '''Do not use mod_webapp or warp.'''
   * mod_jserv is unsupported and will not be supported in Tomcat 5. mod_jserv was the original
connector which supported the ajp protocol. '''Do not use mod_jserv.'''
   * jk2 is a refactoring of mod_jk and uses the Apache Portable Runtime (apr). But due to
lack of developer interest, it is unsupported. The alternative is mod_jk or mod_proxy_ajp.
'''Do not use jk2.'''
-  * '''mod_jk is great and should be used for production'''. It is still under active development
and also works for the apache 2.X series for cases where you do not want to use mod_proxy_ajp.
+  * '''mod_jk is mature, stable and extremely flexible.'''. It is under active development
by members of the Tomcat community.
-  * mod_proxy. A cheap way to proxy without the hassles of configuring JK. This solution
lacks sticky session load balancing. If you don't need some of the features of jk - this is
a very simple alternative.
+  * mod_proxy. A cheap way to proxy without the hassles of configuring JK. If you don't need
some of the features of jk - this is a very simple alternative.
   * mod_proxy_ajp. With apache 2.2, mod_proxy was rewritten to support load balancing as
well as a new transport called mod_proxy_ajp. This module is distributed with the Apache http
server, not the Tomcat server.
