Subject RE: New Apache 2.0 / Tomcat 4.0.3 Windows Setup Guide
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2002 04:58:23 GMT
Yes, mod_jk and mod_webapp serve the same purpose. At the moment,
however, the only connector that works with Apache 2.x on Windows is
mod_jk, and the only connector that works in Apache 2.x on Linux is
mod_webapp. Strange state of affairs. :-P

As for Apache/Tomcat versus Tomcat standalone, yes -- the
configurability, flexibility, expandability, scaleability, and security
of Apache are the main reasons to stick with Apache as your primary
server. When it comes down to it, Tomcat is still just a REFERENCE
IMPLEMENTATION of the Java Servlets/JSP specification.

 It covers everything from obtaining and installing a working version of
mod_jk to setting up Tomcat as a Windows service without using any 3rd
party software.

 I also plan to publish a Linux version of this setup guide within a
