Given this verbage on the Tomcat AJP connector configuration site for the aforementioned attribute, I would guess that this redirect just allows for conversion to HTTPS. I have used the same security constraint to require the redirect of HTTP traffic to HTTPS.
If this Connector is supporting non-SSL requests, and a request is received for which a matching <security-constraint> requires SSL transport, Catalina will automatically redirect the request to the port number specified here.
So, to answer your question, the redirect attribute has nothing to do with AJP per se. Given that, I would assume that there is no AJP+SSL "out of the box".
I am looking to set up my application so that Apache handles the SSL and Tomcat uses AJP to comunicate the data. I need away for requests to HTTP to be redirected to HTTPS to stop the user from accidentally using an insecure pipe. Did you find any helpfull links when you looked into your problem?
