mod_jk 2.0.46 does not exist.

Without trying to send something back to the client, there is no way 
telling the client closed the window (or pressed reload or switched to 
another URL). So in order to be able to stop processing long running 
stuff, you need to try sending something to the client every now and 
then, and your code working on producing the real response content needs 
to be stopped by some notification. You will need to implement this 

Maybe someone can provide some example code?
