Subject RE: Getting mod_webapp - should I give up?
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2002 16:03:08 GMT
So, I'll forget about mod_webapp because no one knows how to build it
and the people who built it once say that it doesn't work well anyway.

So, I'll try mod_jk, though I'm concerned that it's marked as deprecated
in the apache bugzilla.

Now, I just need a URL of some instructions for building mod_jk, because
there are no binaries or rpms for mod_jk either, at least not for
Tomcat4. Note that I'm trying to use Apache2.
