Tomcat 5.5.12/APR

Anyone actually using the APR support in Tomcat 5.5? I have enabled it on my Windows box and everything is coming back as junk, namely:

msg_ajp.getString(): BufferOverflowException %d %d

And a lot of junk. Not using APR makes everything work correctly. I've got Apache2 (and Domino) on the other end using AJP 1.3; get errors with both. APR is supposed to "enahnce performance in production environments". Seems pretty broken to me, and there's little documentation or Google results on this error.

Does anyone actually use the APR stuff with Tomcat 5.5, or shall I dropkick it to the curb?


It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
