I'm not laughing (at least I try to). Since I'm relatively sure about
the jk feature: what about updating to a recent jk version. 1.2.6 is
..., we are at 1.2.26.

I never worked with TC 3.3, but the docs tell us, that it allows an
AJP13 connector, so that one should be compatible with recent JK
versions. In case you are still using AJP12, that's not a safe bet to
use AJP12 with recent JK.

The docs look like the connector attributes we posted as an alternative
solution unfortunately don't exist for 3.3.
