Has anyone had experience with installing and configuring the APR connector with Tomcat on Windows?

Thanks in advance

I believe I've gotten this fixed.

The Tomcat binary installation for Windows already comes with the Tomcat APR connector library (tcnative-1.dll) installed in the /bin directory. I then downloaded the APR library (libapr) from source and compiled it with Visual Studio C++. I then placed the compiled APR library in my Tomcat bin directory.

I then created a connector element in the server.xml.

[code]
<Connector port="8086" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11AprProtocol"
connectionTimeout="20000"
redirectPort="8443" />
[/code]

It doesn't throw any exceptions, so I'm assuming this works.
