Subject Re: Why and How Tomcat before Apache?
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2001 15:40:47 GMT
Before you dwelve into connecting Tomcat and Apache, you need to know
what is the TCP socket, and what is TCP server and TCP client.

In the case of connection mod_jk connector between Apache and Tomcat,
Tomcat is the TCP server and Apache is the TCP client.
And for this to work nicely, you need to start Tomcat first, and then
start Apache. 
Of course, when you include (what you should not do: you should copy
to some file, and include this file) config files (e.g.,
automatically created by Tomcat, then obviously, you cannot include
what was not yet created.
