Please help me in following matter.
I am trying to choose web application frontend among Apache HTTPD and Tomcat. As I can undestand, for integration Apache HTTPD with JBoss (Tomcat) I should use mod_jk and AJP1.3 protocol (may be ports redirecting is better solution?). Also I can configure Tomcat to listening 80 port.
What solution is better and for what cases? I undestand it is the multilateral question but may be someone can share own experience.
Apache httpd with mod_proxy (or mod_proxy_ajp) allows you have a Frond-end to a cluster. mod_jk is the most used solution when you run a cluster of application server.
To configure Tomcat to run on port 80 you may use daemon http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/daemon/.
