Actually, in-process with mod_jk is only supported (and, I use the term 
lightly :) for TC 3.3.x.  For any higher versions it doesn't work at all.

You've managed to grasp the deep, dark plan of the Tomcat developers:  It is 
expected that people will migrate to mod_proxy_ajp with Httpd 2.2+, and 
mod_jk is expected to move to supporting IIS/SunOne only (and, the later 
only if somebody steps up with interest :).
