I am using tomcat 6.0.16 on windows vista.

I am trying to use the new CometProcessor servlets introduced in Tomcat 6. On the docs page, it says you need to have either APR or NIO connectors enabled in order to facilitate requests to a servlet which implements CometProccessor. If you use the standard connector, you will get the "GET method is not supported by this URL" error.

I tried to enable APR connector support, by downloading the tcnative-1.dll from apache and placing it first in system32 ( no effect ) and then in the bin directory of my Java 6 JDK ( also no effect ). I still get the "GET method is not supported by this URL"

How can I enable either APR or NIO connectors in Tomcat 6, so that I can use the new Comet servelts? I can only find Linux tutorials via google.

Seems like no one knows. I've searched Google but found nothing but Linux tutorials. I've asked this on several other forums to no avail as well.

Anyone know a good place to ask this question? Are there any forums/chats where people who would know the answer to this hang out?

I would start by reading this page
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/aio.html
If you haven't already.

1. You have to change the connector on server.xml file to the indicated. This file is on {tomcat-install-dir}/conf.
2. There are pre-requisites to use Comet-based protocols. This page could help you, look at the installation section:
