  Integrating Tomcat with Apache Via the mod_jk Module
Subject:   whats the difference - mod_jk & mod_webapp

An article on the Apple developers website <http://developer.apple.com/internet/java/tomcat1.html> describes enabling tomcat via apache using the webapp module. The process appeared a little simpler than the process of installing mod_jk. Are there any advantages to be gained by choosing one module over the other?

    Apologies for making this seem difficult! Actually, the hardest part of the process (and explained in the article) is compiling the mod_jk.so module itself. (The Apple article included a link to a compiled binary, which I hoped to do as well.)

    For simple situations, either or should work just fine. However, as stated by the developers, there are often situations where you would like a choice. (The connector architectures are really a deep, dark corner of the Tomcat project.) A full, thorough discussion was presented to the Tomcat-dev list here: http://www.mail-archive.com/tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org/msg26335.html

    As everyone will point out, choose which approach will work best for you, and test, test, test.
