thanks for the link. I found some useful information on the configuration files and the tomcat connector, but still having problems accessing servlets and jsp files. when i try to open a jsp file it does not show any of the jsp features... and when i try open a servlet iam getting not found error..
the details of how i did the integration are: build the tomcat connector(uses ajp13) from src to produce the mod_jk.so file made changes to the following files: httpd.conf server.xml web.xml
iam not sure that my connector(mod_jk.so) is working properly, is there a way of testing this ?
i am using apache 2.0 and tomcat5.5, any other tips would be appreciated.
You should not have to do anything to your web.xml to get the connector to work.
The thing about getting the connector to work is that you got to connect the dots.
In my limited experience, I have found that tomcat for the most part, should be "tweeked" last. All you need is simple "HelloWorld" application deployed to test the connection. I believe by default the server.xml is setup for the ajp13. The ports 8009 and 8005(shutdown) are already configured.
Most of the problems I encountered was on the Apache and Connector side. So my recommendation would be reset tomcat back to its original configuration.
Then verify: 1. httpd.conf 2. workers.properties 3. verify that the worker you define for worker.list=??? is exactly the same as in httpd.conf.
