Subject Request for clarification - I.E. Tomcat mod_jk installed in Apache
Date Thu, 02 Nov 2000 19:33:39 GMT

I've installed the mod_jk module into Apache, everything 'seems' to work
fine. I've also configured a new App called "Servlets" just to test stuff.

When I issue

The server says "404 cannot find file" and the logs claim "Cannot find file

When I issue:

The Servlet runs fine.

Why would I need to put the module 'inside' apache, if I'm required to run
Tomcat as a process AND access my servlets on another port? Can I not just
run it all off Tomcat standalone? I understand that Apache is more
'configurable' and handles static content better, but, I don't understand
why I would add Tomcat into apache if I just access the same URL as I would
if it was stand alone. Could I not get the same results leaving NOTHING
extra inside Apache and referencing my Servlet files on the 8080 port (as
tomcat stand alone)?

Hope this wasn't too confusing.
