Subject Re: why use mod_webapp?

Hi
the reason  i see is because you can have more power to extend your
application, and besides because it  relies on the multi-thier model
splitting the roles and leaving the work to the best app to solve it (apache
on static content) and tomcat on processing jsp's.

You can have several tomcats behind an apache and you dont have to pay for
an altheon  or an arrow-point to redirect the request for 4 or 5 tomcats on
different machines, since mod_jk you have a round robin with stickness that
allows you to do the trick for you.

It can be seen as the model of 1 http server as a front end  (Apache) and
serveral  app-servers (Tomcat) behind.

Well, ya I know this.  But you could still have apache do a re-direct to
tomcat on whatever port it's lisening on (say 8080) and get the same
result.  My own personal opinion is mod_webapp is cleaner but I'm under
some pressue to say WHY it's better.  Can't really think of any good
reasons really.

same port! port 80 is http (apache) tomcat would then have to run alone
on
another machine or Virtual IP.
the beauty is that we can now SSI jsp/servlet in html and you never
bounce
to another port or have to add DNS entrees...
just a few reasons, you'll get more and better explained.

Hi Folks,
I'm already using mod_webapp for handling my tomcat traffic via
apache.  My question from a guy here is why do we do this and not just
create a simple re-direct page?  ie. create a directory with a 1 line
HTML page in it that re-directs to the tomcat HTTP server.  Are there
other advantages to using the WARP connector?

Thanks

Dave
