Subject RE: Tomcat + Apache Across Multiple Machines
Date Fri, 11 Aug 2000 16:02:34 GMT

	I know how to mount an apache virtual directory to run servlets on
the tomcat machine, that is the easy part. What I want to do is tell apache
that any jsp anywhere gets served by the tomcat box, any other request
period should come from the apache box. This is what I am having trouble
setting up.

	There should be something in the the apache config like this:

	ApJServMount /servlet ajpv12://
	AddHandler .jsp /servlet/gnujsp

	With this setup all jsps would be handled by gnujsp on a JServ
machine, I need to know how to do this using tomcat. It is possible however
that I missunderstood your answer. Any ideas?

You need to direct all servlet requests to your tomcat box with something

#the following line is used, when tomcat runs on another machine...
ApJServMount /servlet ajpv12://tomcat_Box/root
