Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51145] New: Need a NIO-based AJP connector
Date Tue, 03 May 2011 11:27:32 GMT

             Bug #: 51145
           Summary: Need a NIO-based AJP connector
           Product: Tomcat 7
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Connectors
    Classification: Unclassified

One of the major changes in Tomcat 7 is that it supports the Servlet 3.0
specification.  A major part of the Servlet 3.0 specification is obviously the
support for asynchronous requests.

Some of us need to use Apache and mod_jk to provide load balancing over
multiple Tomcats.  This means using the AJP connector, which currently has only
BIO and APR options.  For those of us needing to support many (7) different
platforms (some with horrific linkers, etc), APR is just not a workable
solution -- too many nasty builds.

For such use cases a NIO-based AJP connector would really be enormously

Mark Thomas stated, "I don't know how much work that would be to write but
with the refactoring already completed for Tomcat 7 it might be as
little as 1000 lines of code."
