So today I’m trying to get Apache and Tomcat to talk to each other, and I’m having a boatload of problems, as you might expect from two incredibly widely used open source packages that are written under the auspices of the same larger project. It didn’t help that one of the first things I found during the ordeal was a weblog entry from Russell Beattie complaining about the same problems I was having, more or less. I’m a major newer is better type person, so I’m trying to use Apache 2.0, Tomcat 5, and mod_jk2. I think mod_jk2 is the source of all my problems — I’m about to try to compile mod_jk and use that instead.
