building mod_jk2

Hi all,

I'm awarding as many points as EE will let me for help with this. I'll award more too if there is some way that I can.

I downloaded jk2 2.0.4 to connect Tomcat 4.1.30 with Apache2 on a debian box. I have everything installed that I need - jdk1.4.2, Ant 1.6 and my env variables and classpath is correct as well. I have set this up before but it was with mod_jk and Apache 1.3 and it was much easier than jk2. I cannot get this to build at all and I've tried a ton of different things.

I'd really appreciate if someone that has done this recently could list the steps they did to get it to build. Thanks in advance,

-Pat

Never mind. After working at it some more I finally got it to build correctly. Please close this question.

I went through that nightmare. I tried jk1.* which worked fine, but this one didn't. Instead I used mod_proxy rewrite rule as recommended in the Tomcat Manual.
See the page: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/proxy-howto.html

Basically, you'd add the lines:
ProxyPass         /myapp  http://localhost:8081/myapp
ProxyPassReverse  /myapp  http://localhost:8081/myapp

and from Tomcat (sorry for using tomcat 5, but its the one i used)
<Connector port="8081" ...
 proxyName="www.mycompany.com"
 proxyPort="80"/>

My conclusion is porbably that there is a bug, but I may be mistaken. But this solution worked perfectly, the only problem is you cannot have JSP files around your site, they have to be in /myapp to work.

Can you give me a hint of how the build was performed? Any Catch?
