Subject Re: WebServer-Tomcat linking problem... was [cannot find file "mod_jk.conf-auto"]
Date Wed, 18 Feb 2026 02:30:46 GMT
I have successfully built mod_jk.so on both FreeBSD and Redhat 6.2, along
with Apache with and without dynamic modules, SSL, PHP, etc. It is
not a developer issue if you got a good compile -- it is almost certainly
a configuration issue and screw up on your part. Don't blame the code.

I will say in your defense, though, that the documentation and general
layout of things totally sucks on tomcat 3.2.1. The learning curve is
way too high. That shit should just work, period. I recently spent some
serious time trying to compile mod_jk on a box where there really ARE
developer issues (Mac OS X Public Beta, aka Darwin 1.2). It was
not doable, because the tomcat code base is not really portable to all
unix's. In contrast, I was able to build Caucho Resin's Apache
connector (which uses the GNU ./configure system) out of the box,
so Resin is what we'll be using. It's faster, too.

So I think the tomcat dev team needs to adopt something like GNU's
automake if they really want to get serious about portability. (Or get
serious about their code).

Regards,


Dave
