Subject RE: Getting mod_webapp - should I give up?
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2002 09:16:16 GMT
As far as I can see, mod_webapp was designed to be an easier to setup way of
integrating apache and tomcat and it succeeds in this on windows for apache
1.3 and tomcat 4.0x.  However, it will serve all content from a directory
you configure it for from tomcat whereas mod_jk* will leave html, jpg, gif
etc to Apache.  The way round this is to have your pics and static pages in
a different location that is served by Apache alone and referenced as
/static/xxx or similar but this then loses the convenience of a single war
file containing everything needed for the application (it can even include a
mod_jk conf file which can help with mapping servlets without the need for
the ugly /servlet/servlet_name of the auto-created jk conf filers of tomcat
3)

Worse than the above, I have found that large requests or frequent requests
or just at random cause tomcat to give an error about the client terminating
or some such and hang.  With mod_jk this doesn't happen (or with tomcat
standalone).

Best Wishes

Subject: Getting mod_webapp - should I give up?


So, nobody can help me to build mod_webapp, and there is no rpm of it to
download. Does this just mean that it can't be built?

I don't remember where I read that mod_webapp was the "correct" way to
integrate Apache2 and Tomcat4. The documentation is a bit fragmented.

Is mod_jk* the true way to do this? If so, could someone give me a URL
to a definitive page that says this and how to get/build it?

I just want to integrate Apache2 and tomcat4, not do anything special.
About a year ago I did successfully integrate Apache1 and tomcat, but I
haven't worked with tomcat since then.
