Subject Re: Solaris binary for
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2000 03:50:28 GMT

The docs ASSUME you are compiling using gcc not Sun's cc.  If you use Sun's
compiler you have to add -DSOLARIS and -lposix4 to the command line.  You
also have to manually edit some files in ../jk/ because Sun's cc doesn't
like comments after a #endif (i.e. #endif /* netware */ ).  

$(APXS) -I ../jk ${JAVA_INCL} -DSOLARIS -lposix4 -c -o $@ mod_jk.c $(SRCS)

What they should do is include src/native in the bin distribution so one
doesn't need to download both, just to be able to get at src/native/jk
and src/native/apacheX.X. 

[This is fresh in my head as I just installed Apache 1.3.14 & Tomcat 3.2, and
then integrated them on a Solaris 2.6 machine.]


According to

| appreciate have a binary as well.

| which I really appreciated. I had major problems building mod_jserv
| previously, due to pretty much non-existent or incorrect documentation.
| BTW, I'm hoping at some point to no longer have to use Apache Web Server at
| all and instead just use Tomcat in stand-alone mode. However, there are a
| few issues that I need to resolve first. One issue is that I want to limit
| SSL connections to using 128-bit encryption and not 40-bit or 56-bit. I'm
