I apologize for my lack of knowledge, but I hope this is the place to ask such questions.
What is the relationship between Tomcat, Apache, and mod_jserv.
My understanding is that Apache serves HTTP requests primarily by returning HTML to the browser. Tomcat handles JSP requests. When Apache gets a JSP requests, it knows to let Tomcat handle it. Tomcat then uses the JDK to turn the JSP into a servlet and work with it.
So what does mod_jserv do?
Also what is the relationship between the Apache group JServ and Tomcat?
Thanks for your help
I agree. Here's the link:
