For the Tomcat AJP connector configuration

      <Connector port="8009" address="${jboss.bind.address}"
         emptySessionPath="true" enableLookups="false" redirectPort="8443"
         maxThreads="100" connectionTimeout="2000"
         protocol="AJP/1.3"/>

What is the exact meaning/interpretation of connectionTimeout parameter.
The documentation says "The number of milliseconds this Connector will wait, after accepting a connection, for the request URI line to be presented." But not able to understand the interpretation of "for the request URI line to be presented" term.

Does it mean "until the first packet is sent out of the response" or something more specific. Or it is a CPing/Cpong request/response ack.

no its the first packet of the request.
if it does not recieve the request after connectionTimeout seconds after connection made then connection is timed out.

Hmmm. So basically it is related to mod_jk being able to communicate with Tomcat swiftly and has nothing to do with the time it would take Tomcat to process and serve the request. Yeah it does make sense since it is the connectionTimeout parameter on the Tomcat side. Mod_jk has a similar parameter on it's side for connection with Tomcat.

Thanks for the quick clarification.
