For more details and some background, take a look at the Bugzilla issue in the 

To start contributing you should:

subscribe to d...@tomcat.apache.org (http://tomcat.apache.org/lists)
subscribe to d...@jmeter.apache.org (http://jmeter.apache.org/mail.html)
sign up for a ASF Bugzilla account
Step one is introduce yourself to the mailing lists.

The step 2 will be to draft an API. For that, you'll probably want to use the 
Tomcat wiki so sign up for an account there (cwiki.apache.org) and ask on the 
Tomcat dev list for edit privs for the wiki. Look at the code linked from the 
BZ issue for ideas. Keep in mind that we need to be able to send invalid as 
well as valid data via this API. Put some ideas together and ask for feedback.

I'm sure you'll have lots of questions as you go. Just ask on the 
dev@tomcat.a.o list.

> Apache Tomcat supports the AJP protocol for communication between reverse 
> proxies (httpd, IIS, etc) and Tomcat. It would be useful for various purposes 
> (bug investigation, testing, load testing, etc.) to have an wget/curl/ab etc. 
> equivalent for AJP.
> A good starting point exists in the Apache JMeter project. This task is to 
> produce (probably but not necessarily starting from the JMeter code):
> - A Java library that provides AJP client functionality
> - integrate that client with JMeter
> - provide a command line wrapper for that client library
> and then use the library to (stress) test Tomcat's AJP implementations, 
> identify bugs and provide patches for those bugs.
> For the history see https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47242
