Can't help feel that I am falling into a trap here, but if we have a
windows 64 bit os, using 64 bit jvm and 64 bit tomcat, are you suggesting
that it would be better to use a 32 bit httpd and mod_jk?

file or an addendum to the existing one

I see that the binary releases that are available are signed by you. So
perhaps I could ask why there isn't a 64 bit mod_jk included? I assume the
answer will relate to your response to the above question

Thanks for your help
