I've googling many times for this topic, but I don't see a clear answer.

We have Apache modules for a lot of languages:

    mod_perl
    mod_php
    mod_python
    ...
    mod_xxx

I know there is a mod_java but it's old (JVM 1.6) and buggy.

In Java web development, why don't we rely on a better mod_java instead of Tomcat, Glassfish, JBoss, etc?


Thank you

The mod_java that you referred to is actually a telephony API used to build call processing featurelets (something like SIPServlets - JSR 359) - it is not an extension for Apache.

.. and welcome to the Ranch!

But can we use some kind of Apache module instead of Tomcat, Glassfish, ... ?

Just like in php?

If you want to use Java, why don't you want to use Tomcat?

If you want to use Apache and Tomcat together, you would do that with the mod_jk module.
