Subject ISAPI Redirector Work-Flow
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2010 21:48:45 GMT
I am trying to understand how the ISAPI Redirector functions at an
overview level but deeper than this: The request comes into IIS where
the ISAPI Redirector filter sends the servlet and JSP requests to the
Tomcat server. I know the redirector works with AJP13 to redirect
requests to the Tomcat container. What I want to know is HOW that is
done. Is it a redirected HTTP request, a 301 redirect or is it a
port-to-port connection between the AJP13 processor and the defined
instance in the file? As this properties file defines
the host name of the server holding the Tomcat instance, this can be on
a different server than the IIS server, correct? Then does AJP13
'connect' directly to the defined server ("localhost" in all the
examples I have seen) and the defined port ("8009" in the same
If you know of a diagram that shows how this works, please share the
link to that resouce.
