Everything I have read says that mod_jk will not work with 2.2.  What
little information is available says use the proxy modules.

You should specify these modules to be built during the building of
Apache and then load them:

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_ajp_module modules/mod_proxy_ajp.so

Then, there are about a zillion ways to proxy and next to NO
documentation on actually using them.  I found this simple approach
works, as long as you are asking nothing more than shooting every
request through to Tomcat:

<Location / >
   ProxyPass ajp://localhost:8009/
</Location>

Thanks.

It goes against the grain of modern education to teach children to
program. What fun is there in making plans, acquiring discipline in
organizing thoughts, devoting attention to detail and learning to be
self-critical?  --Alan Perlis, Epigrams in Programming
