For the Apache-Tomcat setup, what do experienced JSP developers here prefer? mod_jk or JServ? I am hearing that mod_jk is replacing JServ, yet so little seems to be written about its merits. TIA, Bryan

It's been a while since I've used the plug-ins.
I believe you are correct. mod_jk is replacing JServ.
As far as the differences go, I believe the main differences are in stability and performance. Also, I think that JServ must run in a separate memory space. Which means that for each request, it'll start and stop. Whereas, with mod_jk, you have the option to specify it to run in it's own memory space or run in the vm memory. Boy, this info is really rusty. You may want to check me against the apache project. jakarta.apache.org.
