Subject RE: TOMCAT-STANDALONE needed with Apache Server?
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2002 15:59:17 GMT

First, you don't need Apache.  Tomcat works just fine in stand-alone mode.
Don't bother with Apache and connectors unless you absolutely need it, or
have aversions to running Tomcat on port 80.

Second, stay away from mod_webapp (WARP).  AFAIK, it isn't active anymore,
and it wasn't finished when the activity stopped anyway.  The current stable
connector is mod_jk (JK/AJP13).  Also available is mod_jk2 (JK2), but that
has been designated as "beta" by the team.  Choose the one you want to use.

Third, there are several HOWTOs for Windows and other platforms, like this
one from Robert Sowders using JK2:

Search the archives for others.

If you choose to use Tomcat in stand-alone, you don't need any of the other
connectors enabled in server.xml.  Conversely, if you do decide to go the
Apache + connector route, you don't need the stand-alone connector enabled
in server.xml.  Just comment out the connectors you don't need and restart

The default connector for JK is port 8009, I believe.
