Tomcat is a modular system. It is the specific wiring together of these modules that make it a J2EE server, but the modules are fairly flexible so other types of systems can also be created.
The Connector component is a javabean that establishes and configures a listener (network port) so that external clients can communicate with Tomcat. The Connector is intended to be wired into a Service component and feed an Engine component. The Engine is what handles the actual web application, including routing the requests received from Connectors to the proper webapp, server or JSP.
There are 2 primary types of Connector for Tomcat 6: HTTP Connectors and AJP Connectors. The HTTP Connectors handle http and https clients and the AJP Connector is the tunnel that allows a proxing server such as Apache HTTP to link to Tomcat.
I am trying pass the parameters between two jsp files but unable to do this. I m linux user. My jsp files unable to communicate with each other. I have put that jsp files under /var/www/html folder & trying to call this using apache server.
Is workers.properties file solve this issue or mod_proxy, mod_proxy_ajp ?
