Description Robin Stephenson 2005-07-18 13:33:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040914 Firefox/0.10

Description of problem:
I've installed Apache 2 via up2date -- httpd-2.0.52-12.ent

I've installed JBoss.

Now I'm looking for mod_jk to hook the two together, but I can't find it.  I've been guessing RPM names; is there a more effective way of doing this (in the same manner as Debian's "apt-cache search"?).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Apache 2 via up2date -- httpd-2.0.52-12.ent
2. Install JBoss
3. look for mod_jk in /usr/lib/httpd/modules
4. randomly type things into up2date to try to find mod_jk
5. Search Google for information; fail
6. Search RedHat knowledgebase for information, fail
7. Redister for JBoss web site
8. Search JBoss web site for information, fail

Actual Results:  No mod_jk

Expected Results:  up2date mod_jk should have installed mod_jk

Additional info:

Is there a liaison between RedHts & the JBoss developers?  It seems that there could be more communication; I also noticed that JBoss's "redhat init script" is pretty broken...

Comment 2 Robin Stephenson 2005-07-18 13:54:22 UTC
Found a lead in the JBoss docs: it looks like not only is mod_jk2 deprecated,
but now mod_jk is also deprecated.  However, the replacement, mod_proxy_ajp is
not going to be ready until Apache 2.1.


So I'm still left with the question: what is RedHat's way of hooking Apache 2 up
to JBoss/Tomcat?

Should I just go with a binary from here:

I'm uncomfortable; I'd rather have an official RedHat package that is supported...

Sorry about the dupe earlier by the way.
