I am in the middle of moving our web setup from Tomcat 5 to JBoss 4.2. We are currently using mod_jk2, with IIS and Tomcat on different machines.
My plan was to replicate that setup but use JBoss and mod_jk (mod_jk2 now deprecated). I followed the instructions in the recommended link http://www.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=UsingMod_jk1.2WithJBossAndIIS, but have had limited success. Any GETs are served fine, but POSTs arrive inside our application with the form empty. The code to process the empty form still runs, but a response doesn't appear to be sent back and the client (eventually) gets a 'Page cannot be displayed' error. If I switch back to Tomcat, the problem disappears.
My workers.properties.minimal is
worker.list=ajp13w worker.ajp13w.type=ajp13 worker.ajp13w.host=localhost worker.ajp13w.port=8009 worker.status.type=status
