Subject RE: iPlanet + tomcat integration
Date Wed, 29 May 2002 14:00:00 GMT
We run a similar configuration without problems.  Our tomcat instance is not
on the same box but that is controlled via the file and
using localhost instead of the IP of the other box has worked for me in the
past.  We are also using the ajp13 connector as well as the ajp12 but the
ajp12 connector has worked for us as well in the past.  I would guess that
there is a configuration problem in either your file or
in the obj.conf.  

Do you have entries like the ones below in your obj.conf?

NameTrans fn="assign-name" from="/*.jsp" name="Mservlet"

<Object name="Mservlet">
ObjectType fn="force-type" type="text/plain"
Service fn="jk_service" worker="ajp13"

If you want to send me your configuration file I can take a look.

Hope this helps

1. I have to use this version of iPlanet because it's the only one that
works with my 
current application servers.
2. The iPlanet version shouldn't matter, because as far as I know tomcat
connectors can 
work with iPlanet 4.
3. I can't use iPlanets's internal JSP/Servlet engine since it's very old (I
think it supports
JSP tag versions 0.98). I need the newest JSP engine that supports the
latest taglist version,
specially the ones related to database.

Is there a reason why you aren't using iPlanet's jsp/servlet engine? 
Besides the obvious fact iPlanet's implementation is out of date.
iPlanet ent 6 is much better than iPlanet 4.  Perhaps try the newer
version of iPlanet? that might be more fruitful than trying to integrate
tomcat with iPlanet 4.
