Tomcat with IHS for z/OS 7 and mod_jk

Post by teem » Fri Oct 12, 2012 12:02 am

Hi there,

my question ist not 100% Tomcat related, but hopefully someone can help me.

I want to use IBM HTTP server for z/OS 7 (from ported tools) with mod_jk to load balance the requests to some tomcat instances on z/OS. My main reason for using mod_jk is session affinity.

But it seems that IHS encodes the requests into ebcdic before giving them to mod_jk. So mod_jk directs the ebcdic encoded requests to one of our tomcat instances which can't understand it and replys message "bad request". When IHS is configured as reverse proxy, he will pass the request asis to the tomcat.

So is there any possibility to configure IHS to handle all requests as ascii and do no translation?

Thanks and regards
Tim
