After a quick search here, I didn't see a good example/resolution/tutorial on how to integrate Tomcat with Apache (mod_jk, etc.). Lots of postings, but no real answers to get people working (at least on the searches I did).
Is there a tutorial or good step-by-step that anyone has used successfully?
There's for example a "Pro Apache" book out there, but I don't know if it has anything on Tomcat/Apache integration.
I tried this on three different occasions and finally got it to work the third after sitting down for an hour and a half without distractions and following instructions to the 't' and fiddling around a bit to get my settings right. Unfortunately, I don't remember what all caused my earlier attempts to mess up but I did note that your installation path to Tomcat needs to be without spaces. I'm assuming that it would ideally be at the root of a drive, say something like "e:\Tomcat" to avoid any glitches.
I still have the configuration files for Apache so if you need I could post the lines I added so you can see if you're missing something.
Also, I had some trouble locating the correct mod_jk connectors; you'll need to look around in the download archives on the Apache site, they're there somewhere.
P.S. I'm running Win XP SP2 and I used Tomcat 5.5 and Apache 2.2 ( not absolutely sure, only installed it to try this out )

Thanks for your reply.
I went to the first article, but the very first step didn't work.
I tried to just put in the first connector code into Tomcat's server.xml. However, after putting this code in SERVER,XML (I tried both 'tomcat4' and 'tomcat5' in the org.apache.. line), Tomcat wouldn't even start.
