My Crystal Ball tells me that there will be approx. 5000 more complaints
about mod_jk, and approx. 1000 replies from the developers stating "fix it
yourself and DON'T complain anymore!!".
  At that point, everybody have begun using ASP.NET instead, on Mono.

I believe that the reason for these problems lay in the nature of the
WebServer/Tomcat bridge: it's rather complex C code being hacked together
to run on a heap of different OSes and Webservers. One need insight in two
rahter different worlds to be able to code this stuff - and these
abilities are not very common, as is plainly obvious.
  I don't posess them - if I did, I think even I would have scratched that
extreme itch a long time ago!
