Getting Tomcat 4.0.1 and Apache 1.3.23 talking!

I've been banging on this for a LONG TIME, and I seem to be missing something very obvious!  Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction!

I am running Tomcat v4.0.1 and Apache 1.3.23.  Both of these applications run as expected individually, however I cannot get them to work together.  I want users to hit my Apache Webserver, and Tomcat serve up JSP/Servlets through Apache.

I have spent a good time searching online, and have come up with many tutorials on the issue, but I can't get a single one to work.

I've tried mod_webapp.  This is the closest I've gotten to getting it to work.  Unfortunately, it doesn't work at all.  In the logs, I keep getting a "Premature end of packet" error in the log files.  No content is served at all.

I spent a good part of the day looking into mod_jk.  I did everything in the "README.txt", however I cannot figure out how to get the mod_jk.so file out of it!  I've got the appropriate Tomcat jar files, but without mod_jk.so, Apache wont work!

I just can't believe Jakarta wrote all these applications, and didn't write a decent tutorial on how to integrate them!  Every one I find seeems to leave out some vital piece!

Anyone have any ideas?

Are you using tomcat 4.0?  If so you might want to consider trying mod_webapp as oppossed to mod_jk.

This article might help:

Also, you seem to be having some issues with the .so files.  Basically, a .so is a shared object library file.  This should be the product of compilation!  Are you making the project and compiling it successfully?  If so, you would want to move that .so into the same location as the other apache .so module files you're using, and enable it appropriately in the apache http.conf file.
