Subject RE: Experience with connectors to connect tomcat to apache ?
Date Wed, 28 Aug 2002 07:56:04 GMT
Although I think there have been a lot of contributions concerning this (try
searching the archives) beeing much more helpful, here is my configuration:

1 Apache 1.3.26 with mod_ssl
1 Tomcat 4.0.4 
both on S.u.S.E. Linux 8.0 (Kernel 2.4.18)
Connector: mod_jk

We use the connector mainly to have apache as a time-tested front-end with
ssl encryption. mod_jk seems to be the connector of choice for production
systems, since it is around some time longer and more widely used. One more
factor has been the possibility to upgrade the configuration to a cluster
having one apache as loadbalancer and a couple of tomcats as workers. We
have no data concerning the performance, but have nothing to complain about
mod_jk's performance either. So far the other components (database e.g.)
have been the bottlenecks, so I would not worry about optimizing something
concerning the connector so long as it does it#s job reliably.

Subject: Experience with connectors to connect tomcat to apache ?

Hi Group,

since it seems that there is noone out there, who can help me with my
problem 'How to configure multiple tomcat instances connecting to apache
using thewarp connector', I'd like to share your experience with connectors
connecting tomcat with apache.

What are the main differences between the Warp and the AJP13 connector
except for the load  balancing ?
Is one of the two more performant ?
Will Coyote JK2 connector bring any improvements in addition to inprocess
Which connector do you prefer ? Why ?

Any input is appreciated. Please do not forget the OS, Apache- and Tomcat
version you use.
