There seems to be a great deal of discussion about JK2.  I know that JK2
is the outstanding issue for me in getting Tomcat running.   Maybe it
would be a good idea to share everyone's experiences about JK2, like
what works and what doesn't.  Then we could at least have something to
go on.  Maybe we could post our .properties files somewhere along with
the log and see if we can either reproduce the error or learn from it.

My question was: downgrade to mod_jk? (I have read that mod_webapp is

I believe you and they do even on my server! But only for JSP and I
can't see what _I_ am doing wrong. So John please, all the fault is
mine! I took the time to learn how to install Tomcat a few years back. I
moved up through the versions. I documented how I got it working and
published my HOWTO which got 3500 hits the day it appeared in Apache
week (so I guess I gave a little bit back to the comunity...).

What went wrong was moving up to Apache2 and Tomcat 4.1.24. I am at the
bottom of the learning curve again.

Should I drop mod_jk2 and try mod_jk?
