Subject Re: Apache, Tomcat/JBoss, SSL, redirection
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2003 18:37:04 GMT
As I have not received any hints, is there a better list I should be posting this type of question
to?  Like I said, I think the question is reasonable but I might be overlooking something
completely obvious.  

thanks again for your assistance,

 I did not compile anything; HP supplies a pre-configured suite of products (Apache and Tomcat,
among others); I simply installed JBoss 3.0.7 (w/ Tomcat) and pointed JBoss to use HP's pre-installed
Tomcat instead of its own.

of https)

 The HP admin would highly prefer to use these pre-packaged solutions as opposed to compiling
from source, although we can do that if we have to.
