Subject Re: Tomcat7 + WebSocket + mod_jk

Unless you are going to need more than one web container i really don't see
the reason to use Apache HTTPD as a reverse proxy, provided that you have
installed and are using the APR connector. As for the anwser to the
question "how do you achieve proxying of websocket communication" i think
there is no standard way yet. Keep in mind users are probably going to run
into problems with Websockets if they are behind a firewall, web proxy etc.
Unfortuantely websockets are great but are not mature yet.
