Subject RE: Tomcat/Apache question
Date Sat, 29 Apr 2000 21:20:15 GMT
OK, I appreciate everyone's help.  Unfortunately, I still cannot get the
example servlets working the way I want them to.  Let me be a little more

1.  I do not want Tomcat to serve up everything in the /examples context.  I
want Apache to handle the static files.  I want Tomcat to handle ONLY the
JSPs and servlets.  The directive "ApJServMount /examples /root" will not
accomplish this, as it causes Tomcat to serve up everything in /examples.
2.  The JSPs do work as I want them to.  When I go to
http://localhost/examples/jsp Apache serves up the index.html file that
links to the JSPs.  When I click on one, the request is handled by Tomcat
and the JSP runs as it should.
3.  The Servlets are not working.  When I go to
http://localhost/examples/servlets Apache serves up the index.html file as
you would expect, but when I click on one of the servlet links, Apache (not
Tomcat) returns a 404 error.  The problem is that Apache is not recognizing
the servlet URI and "forwarding" the request to Tomcat.  Instead, it is
actually looking for some static file at
http://localhost/examples/servlet/HelloWorldExample.  Because "/examples" is
an alias for "/usr/jakarta-tomcat/webapps/examples", I see the following
entry in my Apache error log: "File does not exist:

It seems like this problem *must* be related to the ApJServMount directive.
I am using the default setting from my tomcat-apache.conf file so I don't
know what could be wrong, but it clearly isn't working as it should.  Does
anybody have anymore ideas?

Subject: Tomcat/Apache question


I am trying to get Tomcat working with Apache and I'm having some problems.
I'm using Redhat Linux 6.2, Apache 1.3.12, Tomcat 3.1, and IBM's JDK118.
All I want to do is get the Servlets and JSPs in the
$TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/examples directory to work.  Right now I can get the
JSP examples to work, but none of the servlets work - I just get 404 errors.
This is what I have in my tomcat.conf file:

	<IfModule mod_jserv.c>
		ApJServManual on
		ApJServDefaultProtocol ajpv12
		ApJServSecretKey DISABLED
		ApJServMountCopy on
		ApJServLogLevel notice
		ApJServDefaultPort 8007

		AddType text/jsp .jsp
		AddHandler jserv-servlet .jsp
		Alias /examples /usr/jakarta-tomcat/webapps/examples
		<Directory "/usr/jakarta-tomcat/webapps/examples">
			Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
		<Location /examples/WEB-INF/ >
			AllowOverride None
			deny from all

		ApJServMount /examples/servlet /examples

The 404 responses are coming from Apache, not the Tomcat server.  They also
show up in my apache error log.  It almost seems as though the ApJServMount
command isn't even being executed.  Requests for servlets are not being
forwarded to Tomcat.

Can somebody please help me out here?  Thanks.
