Here is the procedure for connecting Apache and Tomcat using JK1.2. on windows systems.
1)download following things(Apache site)
Apache 1.3.27
Jakarta-Tomcat 4.1.12
mod_jk v1.2

2)install apache,tomcat and test them.
3)Add <connector> element to in server.xml file like below so that tomcat is listening for AJP13 requests coming from JK1.2. like below
<Connector className="org.apache.ajp.tomcat4.Ajp13Connector"
port="8009" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
acceptCount="10" debug="0"/>

Above element makes sure that the incoming requests coming at port 8009 will be sericed by Ajp13Connector.
4)Now we need to create a tomcat worker in tomcat worker file,which tells Apache how and when to talk with tomcat.

And save the file as workers.properties and place it at Tomcat's [/B][/B]<CATALINA_HOME>/conf directory.
5)Now tell Apache to talk to that worker whenever needed by modifying the httpd.conf file at <APACHE_HOME>/conf directory.
6)copy mod_jk(dll file) module to the <APACHE_HOME>/libexec directory.
7)Tell Apache to load the module by adding below to httpd.conf file
LoadModule jk_module libexec/mod_jk-1.3.26.dll
AddModule mod_jk.c

and tell the wrokers file location by
JkWorkersFile C:/Tomcat/conf/workers.properties
8)Tell Apache that we want all requests like /examples/servlet/* and /examples/*.jsp to be rerouted and serviced by the worker named myWorker.This is accomplished using the JkMount directive, as follows.
JkMount /examples/servlet/* myWorker
JkMount /examples/*.jsp myWorker

9)Start Apache and tomcat and test them first.
10)Test connection by typing
http://localhost/examples/servlets/index.html or
http://localhost/examples/a.jsp (if already a.jsp at tomcat/examples)
on adress location of your browser.
If you get any problem,check the whole above things..Thanks.
