how to config Tomcat just as a servlet container?

Post by rknerr » Fri Apr 06, 2012 8:45 am

I want to continue to use IBM HTTP Server v5.3 but try Tomcat instead of WebSphere.

Is there a '.so' plugin file like for WAS/WebSphere?

Thanks,
Rick

There is no .so plugin for the old 5.3 (non-Apache) HTTP server.

If you use the current IBM HTTP server (7 or 8) based on Apache, you should be able to use mod_proxy, which is supported by IBM HTTP Apache:

The other option - mod_jk is apparently not supported under the IBM HTTP Apache server.

Google tomcat mod_proxy for information on setting up Tomcat with Apache+mod_proxy

Is there no way to do this with v5.3?

Thanks,

It should be possible, using the 5.3 equivalent of a reverse proxy. I have no experience with this, however.
