Hello,

I was installing Apache-Tomcat with guidelines
i saw in this website: http://apacheguide.org/jsp.php

The site talks about installing the Apache-Tomcat Connector and i would like
to know what is the purpose if this connector.

I just want to get an idea of the role of the connector and I
would appreciate help of any kind.

Thank you.

Sen Aff.

The Connector kind of integrates Tomcat into Apache, so that you can use Apache as the web front end, which would then forward all requests for Java web apps to Tomcat. Much information can be found linked from this page.
