Subject Re: Why is Tomcat/Connector Installation So Incredibly Painful??
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 20:17:36 GMT
I must agree with QM the mod_jk while is made out to be a daunting task, if 
you take some time and follow the myrid of tutorials/how-tos out there I 
would venture to guess that you could do it quickly.  I have done it 4 
times, Windose and Linux and once I had a problem, it was the second time I 
did it, and I got a little ahead of myself and had to restart.  Do it will 
clean everything and you should be fine.
