Hi All,

I'm trying to integrate jboss-4.0.3SP1 app server with the Apache 2.0.52 webserver.

Here are the two variables that I had configured in the system environment.
JBOSS_HOME = C:\SWSetup\jboss-4.0.3SP1
APACHE2_HOME= C:\SWSetup\Apache Group\Apache2

I have a windows XP professional with SP3 Operating system.

As part of this exercise I've done the following steps and I'm not sure what's the next step.

1. Install Apache web server
2. Set the APACHE2_HOME value as given above
3. Download the mod_jk.so file that's compatible with the 2.0.52 version
4. Copy the file into the %APACHE2_HOME%\modules folder
5. Modified three properties present in the %APACHE2_HOME%\conf\worker.properties file. Check below for details
#Not sure whether I can set the Jboss home to tomcat home
workers.tomcat_home=C:\SWSetup\jboss-4.0.3SP1

#I'm setting the JDK1.5 home instead of java home. Can this be a problem?
workers.java_home=C:\SWSetup\Java\jdk1.5.0_21

#The content name of the application is added (http://localhost:8080/myAppName)
worker.list=myAppName
6. After doing these changes, I've run some commands from bin folder and made sure that the apache server is running as a service and tried opening the default page http://localhost
7. So far there I've done the following things
8. But beyond this, what is needed extra to make sure my requests are all routed from web server to app server?

Can any one guide me how to set it up?

Thanks in advance.

Old thread I know....but I'm in the process of installing Railo/JBoss6/Apache and am having the same issue. Any up to date guides on this? Is everyone still using mod_jk or mod_proxy? Is there a better way to get all these working together?
