I would recommend you to upgrade to EAP 6.3 (not GA yet) which has proper web socket support without any need for APR connector.
thanks for your response, but I cannot update JBoss version because it's a legacy component on the infrastructure I'm using...in addiction to this it seems that our version of Atmosphere doesn't support websockets as well as it supports long polling with native APR connectors.
So, is there a way to make these connectors working on EAP 6.2?
I am facing exactly similar issue where the APR connector is not getting enabled on JBoss 6.2 (Windows 32-bits). I read it on one of the threads on JBoss that APR connectors are not supported for 32-bits Windows (Enabling APR connector on JBoss 5.0.0 GA). Can anyone please confirm.
