How to deploy java app. on Tomcat's virtual domains residing outside CATALINA_HOME?

2010-01-08 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hello All,

I've installed Apache httpd +mod_jk and tomcat with multiple virtual hosts
Used primarily those 2 manuals
http://www.alwayssunny.com/blog/?p=174
http://www.howtoforge.com/apache2_tomcat5_mod_jk_p2

and a lot of reading through apache docs.

The virt. domains working and java requests processed by tomcat
through apache httpd.

Now I need to deply java application called Sakai
(http://source.sakaiproject.org/release/2.6.1/artifacts/sakai-bin-2.6.1.tgz)
in
DocumentRoot of one of my virtual domains.

I can't find any documentation on deploying Sakai in similar environment :(
They all talking about downloading the archive into $CATALINA_HOME and
then unpacking the archive. Then start up Tomcat
- 
http://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/DOC/Install+Guide+-+Binary+Install+(2.6)

When I extract sakai-bin-2.6.1.tgz into /srv/myserver029 (Vitual
domain's DocumentRoot) and restart tomcat and apache I'm getting -
HTTP Status 404 - /

type Status report

message /

description The requested resource (/) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.5.26

Which probably means that the app. is not deployed.
Can someone tell me how to install and configure Sakai or any other
similar application in virt. domain ?
There must be some WEB_INF/web.xml config I should use?
May be some parameters in the main server.xml file?

Thanks.
Here are some of my configs realted to apache httpd+tomcat+virt
domains integration:

# cat /etc/httpd/conf/workers.properties:

#

Configuration of mod_jk listener in tomcat

Re: How to deploy java app. on Tomcat's virtual domains residing outside CATALINA_HOME?

2010-01-09 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hello Mark,

Thanks for the link -
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/virtual-hosting-howto.html
I don't think that you've read my configs well.

CATALINA_HOME != httpd document root
That's my case!

Where did you got the info that it isn't so?

appBase and docBase are also different!

And virt. hosts are actually working (please read what I've written).

It must be something with Configuring my Contexts as per manual.
My appBase is also not under CATALINA_HOME.

Sakai is similar to moodle in some way.

I'm sorry that it's 250M but I didn't write it.
I've been asked to install it on virt. domains

Any help please?

 I'm not surprised it didn't work.

 Here are some of my configs realted to apache httpd+tomcat+virt
 domains integration:

 You are using the same location for httpd document root and Host appBase
 and web application's docBase. That is never going to work.

 appBase must *never* be the same as docBase. I suggest you read this:
 http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/virtual-hosting-howto.html

 I strongly recommend that http DocumentRoot is never the same as a web
 applications docBase. You have to be very carefully do to create a whole
 bunch of security issues. It is much easier just not to do this.

 I suggest you follow the Tomcat virtual hosting how-to and get that
 working with Sakai and then worry about adding httpd to the mix.

Thank you guys,

I've decided to install it into CATALINA_HOME since it seems to be the only
proper way for now of installing Sakai.
I also would like to keep apache http and use it's ssl capabilities.

 What are the top-level contents for the Sakai tarball? Is it a single
 directory? I would expect
 http://source.sakaiproject.org/release/2.6.1/artifacts/sakai-bin-2.6.1.tgz
 to expand to either a sakai-2.6.1 directory or maybe even
 webapps/sakai-2.6.1 or something like that.

 If you want to deploy Sakai onto your myserver029.somedomain.com virtual
 host, then you need to put the Sakai directory into one of two places:

 /srv/myserver029/Sakai (for http://myserver029.somedomain.com/Sakai)
 or
 /srv/myserver029/ROOT (for http://myserver029.somedomain.com/)

 You should also remove the Context elements from your conf/server.xml:
 they will cause nothing but confusion.

  O.K I may be wrong but http://sakai26.dyndns.org/servlets-examples/ is
 working.

 That's because you properly deployed them using these commands:

  cp -R /opt/tomcat/webapps/jsp-examples /srv/myserver029/
  cp -R /opt/tomcat/webapps/servlets-examples /srv/sakai26/

  I'd like to fix my configuration and I'm opened for suggestions.
 
  What should I change in my configs (I think that I gave a full configs

 Suggestions:

 1. Remove the ApacheConfig Listener (as Mark already suggested)
 2. Remove Context elements from conf/server.xml
 3. Put Sakai into /srv/myserver029/Sakai or /srv/myserver029/ROOT
  (or /srv/sakai26/Sakai or /srv/sakai26/ROOT)
 4. Eliminate Apache httpd: you're passing-through everything to
   Tomcat anyway

Constrains of the application :(
You can't run 2 instances in same time on the same DB.
That's why I have to configure Cold Failover for that I need to find out
that Tomcat is in unresponsive state to shut it down completely and start it
on another server.

But what's the best way (or may be the only way) to achieve that?

 I'm not sure that's doable either.  If you've got a spare server, why not
 just have the other instance already running?

Re: Multiple SSL certificates on same server

2010-03-08 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hi,


Here's an idea for you:
You can use wildcard when generating your certificate, like *.domain.com,
assuming your servers using same domain.com.

Leon Kolchinsky

 Does anyone know if it is possible, or has anyone done this:

 I have two applications running on a single server. The applications use
 different domains and URLs, so the single Tomcat instance can easily tell
 them apart. (Note: this part is currently working just fine).

 https://domain1/application1
 https://domain2/application2

 Again, both domains point to the same static IP, and yes, it is possible
 for someone to access either application from either domain. Normally, that
 is not an issue with the clients.

 However, I currently have only one SSL certificate on the server - this is
 for domain1. So if you use domain1 to access application1, it's all fine.
 The security cert comes up green and all that.

 BUT - if you try and access application2 via domain2, you get the red
 security cert (wrong domain / server name). I would like to purchase a
 second certificate for the second domain, and am wondering if this can be
 done, and how one would tell Tomcat (in server.xml) to acknowledge the
 second certificate.

 Currently the stuff in server.xml looks like this:

 Connector port=443 protocol=HTTP/1.1 SSLEnabled=true
  maxThreads=150 enableLookups=false scheme=https
 secure=true
  keystoreFile=./keys/.keystore keystorePass=myPassword
  clientAuth=false sslProtocol=TLS /


 I have a bad feeling it's not possible, but wanted to ask anyway.

 Thanks in advance.

 -R


 Richard,

 It's possible.

 It doesn't appear that Tomcat or Java(SUN) support RFC 3546 just yet (For
 Server Name Indication) even though Apache httpd does. However Windows XP
 users of IE will not be able to take advantage of SNI at this time anyway
 (to further rain on your parade). Vista and greater do make use of SNI
 though. Gotta wait for XP to die I guess. :-P

 End result: Multi-Domain Certificate, separate ports, separate IPs or a
 load balancer that distributes the load to an internal IP based on FQDN, to
 which you could then use X amount of different SSL certs.(This last bit may
 be a wee bit complicated)

 Hope this helps

2010-05-26 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Thanks guys for you replys,

Carl - Please update this thread with results of your check for 6u20.

I've decided to install x86 version of JDK - jdk-6u7-linux-i586.bin
(stability is my main concern now)

So in my installation I just installed jdk-6u7-linux-i586.bin version.
1. Changed symlink:
# rm jdk
# ln -s jdk1.6.0_07 jdk
2. Updated paths with:
# alternatives --remove jar /srv/jdk1.6.0_18/bin/jar
# alternatives --remove java /srv/jdk1.6.0_18/bin/java
# alternatives --remove javac /srv/jdk1.6.0_18/bin/javac 100

# alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /srv/jdk1.6.0_07/bin/java 100
# alternatives --install /usr/bin/jar jar /srv/jdk1.6.0_07/bin/jar 100
# alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /srv/jdk1.6.0_07/bin/javac 100

# /usr/sbin/alternatives --config java
There are 2 programs which provide 'java'.
  SelectionCommand
---
*+ 1   /srv/jdk1.6.0_18/bin/java
   2   /srv/jdk1.6.0_07/bin/java
Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number: 2
# java -version
java version 1.6.0_07
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode, sharing)

3. Updated setenv.sh to some basic defaults:

# cat /srv/tomcat/bin/setenv.sh
export JAVA_HOME=/srv/jdk
export PATH=${PATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/bin/

# CATALINA_OPTS=-server -XX:+UseParallelGC -Xms2048m -Xmx2048m
-XX:MaxPermSize=1024m -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled
-XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled -Djava.awt.headless=true
CATALINA_OPTS=-Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m $JAVA_OPTS
-Djava.awt.headless=true 
export CATALINA_OPTS

export CATALINA_PID=$CATALINA_HOME/tomcat.pid

I'm going to monitor this server and see how it goes.

 The current JVM version is 6u20, so you might want to try running with
 that before filing a bug report or expanding the swap file.


 Should also mention that another Tomcat admin reported occasional but
 persistent abrupt terminations of the 1.6 JVM on levels 6u10 and above, but
 went back to 6u7 and that appeared to rectify the problem.  I think the
 highest level he had tested was 6u17, but I'm not positive.

Hello Jung,

Thanks for your insights. Learning some new stuff about Java every day ;)

 (
UNDERSTANDING HOTSPOT IN PLAIN
ENGLISHhttp://www.talkingtree.com/blog/index.cfm/2006/4/28/Understanding-HotSpot-in-Plain-English

Now I can see how to avoid those HotSpot compilation errors and eventual JVM
crashes.
I could use -Xint option to force interpretedmode execution only

like this:
# cat /srv/tomcat/bin/setenv.sh
export JAVA_HOME=/srv/jdk
export PATH=${PATH}:${JAVA_HOME}/bin/
CATALINA_OPTS=-Xint -Xms512m -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m $JAVA_OPTS
-Djava.awt.headless=true

 Yesterday I've got this error in catalina.out and Tomcat died (I'm
 attaching hs_err_pid5460.log file):


 This is not a Tomcat error - it's a bug in the JVM.  The C2 (server)
 compiler is requesting an extremely large expansion of the C (not Java)
 heap.  You can try increasing the swap space to see if that's a viable
 workaround, but you really should do this:

  # If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit:
 #   http://java.sun.com/webapps/bugreport/crash.jsp


 The current JVM version is 6u20, so you might want to try running with
 that before filing a bug report or expanding the swap file.


 If we stick to the theory, that it is actually the Hot Spot compiler, which
 demands the memory, one could also try to work around the issue.

 Option 1: Use the client Hot Sopt compiler (Add -client when starting the
 JVM). It could help,

 Option 2: Disable the Hot Spot compilation for the class and method that
 resulted in the crash:

  Current CompileTask:
 C2:4743  !
 org.apache.velocity.runtime.directive.Foreach.render(Lorg/apache/velocity/context/InternalContextAdapter;Ljava/io/Writer;Lorg/apache/velocity/runtime/parser/node/Node;)Z
 (514 bytes)


 To do this, you need to create a file named .hotspot_compiler in the
 working directory of your Tomcat. You would put a line like that into the
 file:

 exclude org/apache/velocity/runtime/directive/Foreach render

 Some more info about that is contained in


 http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/trouble/TSG-VM/html/crashes.html#gbyzd

 An alternative is adding
 -XX:CompileCommand=exclude,org/apache/velocity/runtime/directive/Foreach,render

 to the command line.

What do you mean by less aggressive compilation?
My understanding that the difference between -client and -server is in
the number of code execution before compilation occurred.

Why is it less fragile?

 A somewhat naive bit of writing; rather outdated, and tad on the dangerous
 side.  Rainer's suggestions and references are much more appropriate.

  I could use -Xint option to force interpretedmode execution only

 You could, but your code execution would slow to a crawl.  Not an
 appropriate thing to do in a production environment.  Don't forget that not
 only is your webapp converted to native code by the JIT, but the thousands
 of methods in the JRE and Tomcat itself are also processed.

 The client mode (as suggested by Rainer, and almost completely ignored by
 the above article) is a less aggressive compilation option, and is thus less
 fragile than the server JIT.  That should suffice until the Oracle/Sun
 people fix the server bug.  (You did file a bug report, didn't you?)

  My understanding that the difference between -client
  and -server is in the number of code execution before
  compilation occurred.

 No, that's one of the most trivial differences.  The client and server JITs
 are two completely separate and mostly independent compiler implementations.

  Why is it less fragile?

 Because the server JIT (commonly known as C2) is much more complex and
 includes many more optimization mechanisms; consequently, there is some
 increased chance of error.

 Just for grins, I compared Tomcat startup times between server mode and
 -Xint with a 64-bit JDK 6u20 running on a 2.0 Ghz dual-core AMD with 4 GB of
 RAM and the following options:

 -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
 -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError

 Using Tomcat 7 RC2 with full logging enabled, server mode startup took just
 under 4 seconds, whereas -Xint required over 6.5 seconds - a rather
 significant difference, especially since it was purely startup.

Rewrite URLs inside HTML pages?

2010-08-01 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hello,

I've configured Tomcat (apache-tomcat-5.5.26) to run behind Apache Http
(v.2.2.3 ) using mod_jk.

We have 2 of those Tomcat servers running on different machines.
We also configured load balancer (CISCO CSM) which we want to use for SSL
offloading and LB.

Load balancer serves https requests and forwards them to http (on the above
servers).

The problem is that links given by apache - the generated html pages (by
Sakai app.)  appeared to include http://
And this is a major problem since we can't even serve forms from https URL's
(the URL of the page is https://. but links inside the HTML page itself
are from http:// format)

I've been thinking to try to resolve this with ProxyHTMLURLMAp
(mod_proxy_html) but I have no experience with this module.

Can someone give me a sample syntax that I can try to include in my vhost
configuration?

Below is my virt. host configuration:
NameVirtualHost *:80

VirtualHost *:80
ServerName servername.com
ServerAdmin leo...@servername.com
ServerAlias sakai-server

# if not specified, the global error log is used

Thanks for your help Rainer/Felix,

I've tested several options including mod_substitute and mod_sed and it
seems that mod_substitute is a way to go.

This is my working configuration now:

LoadModule substitute_module modules/mod_substitute.so
...
AddOutputFilterByType SUBSTITUTE text/html
Substitute s|http://myserver|https://load-balancer|i
Substitute s|http://load-balancer|https://load-balancer|i

Don't ask me why there is a last line, I see no logic here, but without it I
still get several http instead https links via load-balancer backend (May be
Sakai or CISCO CSM side fault).

 It might be worthwhile finding out, why sakai produces wrong links. E.g.


  if you are using mod_jk to connect Apache to Tomcat, and you are talking


  HTTPS to Apache, then the calls the isSecure(), getScheme(),
 getProtocol() will return the information as seen by Apache, so the
 webapp is able to find out that https is used and it seems to be a bug
 in sakai.

 as I understood the issue, the problems arise from using a loadbalancer in

 front of the apache httpd servers, which are using mod_jk to communicate
 with the tomcats. The loadbalancers are terminating the ssl connection and
 presumably
 changing hostnames too.


 Ah OK, missed that.


  But given the documentation link you gave below, it should be easy to
 configure
 the vhost in apache httpd (or two - one for ssl, one for non-ssl traffic)
 by
 setting JkEnvVar for scheme, hostname and port if necessary.

 If I read http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/ajp.html
 correctly, one could
 use proxyPort, proxyName and scheme in the ajp-connector.


 If using mod_jk, you can tell mod_jk, that it should derive the
 information, whether SSL is used or not from some Apache environment
 variable. You can the set the variable as you like e.g. depending on the
 client IP is the connection coming from the loadbalancer) or some other
 params.

 So you would use

 JkHTTPSIndicator MyHTTPSIndicator

 to let mod_jk check the variable MyHTTPSIndicator instead of the Apache
 builtin HTTPS variable, whether HTTPS is used.

 Then you have to set the env var to On for each request you know, that it
 is actually using https from the client point of view, e.g.

 SetEnvIf Remote_Addr 10\.0\.0\.27 MyHTTPSIndicator=On

 where e.g. 10.0.27 is the address of the load balancer (if the requests
 arrive actually with this IP, see the acess log).

 Or you use a separate port and vhost in Apache where you connect the LB to
 and you know everything on this port was originally HTTPS, then you could
 simply set MyHTTPSIndicator always to On in this vhost.

 Regards,

 Rainer


  See for instance:

 http://tomcat.apache.org/connectors-doc/generic_howto/proxy.html

 If you are using http between Apache and Tomcat (not AJP13), then there
 are connector settings for Tomcat to let the webapp know, that you are
 actually using HTTPS on the proxy.

 If you can't fix it like this but instead really have to parse response
 pages and replace links in them, three Apache module choices are
 mod_proxy_html (which you already mentioned), mod_substitute and

 mod_sed.

 Rainer

Re: Rewrite URLs inside HTML pages?

2010-08-04 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hi,

Hmm.
Interesting.
Of course I'd like to make it work with simple configuration or/and with
JkHTTPSIndicator.

I'm just not clear on how to make this simple configuration.

As I've said there is no SSL handling on the server side. All SSL request
handled on the load balance level which in turn talks to Apache (configured
to talk to Tomcat via mod_jk) via http.

myserv.mydomain.com - Tomcat server's Domain name
sakai-stg.mydomain.com - Load balancer's Domain name

Clients coming to Load Balancer's URL https://sakai-stg.mydomain.com need to
use internal links (submit forms etc.) which appear as http://
sakai-stg.mydomain.com/. on the served pages.

 Hi,

 Hmm.
 Interesting.
 Of course I'd like to make it work with simple configuration or/and with

 I'm just not clear on how to make this simple configuration.

 As I've said there is no SSL handling on the server side. All SSL request
 handled on the load balance level which in turn talks to Apache
 (configured
 to talk to Tomcat via mod_jk) via http.

 myserv.mydomain.com - Tomcat server's Domain name
 sakai-stg.mydomain.com - Load balancer's Domain name

 Clients coming to Load Balancer's URL https://sakai-stg.mydomain.com need
 to
 use internal links (submit forms etc.) which appear as http://
 sakai-stg.mydomain.com/. on the served pages.
 Submitting forms is not working in that scenario since the links should

 My logs rotated by logrotate (I'm not familiar with rotatelogs option, will
need to read about it later)

 log sub second timestamps by default, but this format disables that.

 Done: removed  JkLogStampFormat

 Unrelated: Don't like the JkRequestFormat. Instead would use so called

Re: How ot monitor hung tomcat/apache processes?

2010-09-22 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hi,

You can try several approaches (I'll list 2 that I'm aware of):

1) Automatic restarts on OutOfMemory errors:
Add the following to CATALINA_OPTS:

-XX:OnOutOfMemoryError=/usr/sbin/restart_tcserver

Write your restart_tcserver (you may send an e-mail notification from it
etc.)

2) This is what I do (please critisice/suggest improvements to this
approach):

I've got 2 servers with Tomcat+Apache httpd with heartbeat beetween them:
I'm running this little script every 15 min. via cron:

# cat /srv/scripts/test_live.sh
#!/bin/bash
SERVICE_HTTPD=$(ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -c httpd)
SERVICE_TOMCAT=$(ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -c tomcat)
SERVICE_HEARTBEAT=$(ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -c heartbeat)
SERVICE_STATUS=$(/srv/scripts/check_http.pl -H confluence-server.myorg.com
-u /blank.html)

# While testing, please uncomment the following echo statements
if [ $SERVICE_HTTPD -ne 0 -a $SERVICE_TOMCAT -ne 0 -a $SERVICE_STATUS =
Status: OK ]
then
#   echo SERVICE_HTTPD and SERVICE_TOMCAT and SERVICE_STATUS
are OK, everything is fine
exit
elif [ $SERVICE_HEARTBEAT -ne 0 ]
then
echo The following output triggered failover:
SERVICE_HTTPD=$SERVICE_HTTPD , SERVICE_TOMCAT=$SERVICE_TOMCAT ,
SERVICE_STATUS=$SERVICE_STATUS , failing over to spare server
echo The following output triggered failover:
SERVICE_HTTPD=$SERVICE_HTTPD , SERVICE_TOMCAT=$SERVICE_TOMCAT ,
SERVICE_STATUS=$SERVICE_STATUS , failing over to a spare server at `date` |
/bin/mailx -s Server `uname -n` encountered a problem, failing over to a
spare server at `date` lkolchin at gmail dot com
/etc/init.d/heartbeat stop
else
#   echo This server probably failed over to the spare one,
nothing to do
exit
fi
-

If Tomcat+Apache running and application responsive ($SERVICE_STATUS) do
nothing if at least one of those conditions is not true, failover to a spare
server.

 Hmm. Can you monitor from the server itself? That's not unusual to do.
 Also, connections to localhost:80 usually work even when software-based
 firewalls are in place, since the local host is usually considered trusted.

  Well I had an idea, please critic it. Why not monitor the server.log
  file if we get some kind of error. We send an alert and then restart the
  service . Befire that we have to make a repository of types of error
  that can occur

 We have one particularly poorly-written webapp that has a habit of
 running out of memory. We have segregated it into it's own Tomcat
 instance and actually do scan the log file for errors in the way you
 describe.

 The script is essentially this:

 grep -m 1 OutOfMemoryError ${LOGFILE}  /dev/null

 if [ $? == 0 ] ; then

 # notify an administrator

 fi

 It's not particularly elegant, but it gets the job done.

 What kind of Linux ?

 explanation: most Linux distributions (RedHat, Suse, Debian, Ubuntu,..)
 have what is
 called a software package manager utility, which is a special tool to
 install software
 on the system.  It will usually get the desired binary modules, already
 compiled and
 configured, from some repository (often on the web), and install it for
 you.
 It is the easiest and quickest way of installing software on Linux systems.

 For example, if your system is a Debian or Ubuntu Linux, the following
 command would
 download and install mod_jk :

 apt-get install libapache2-mod-jk

 All that as root? Hmm.

 Also, not everyone has a C compiler, especially on a production machine.
 (The answer, of course, is to build somewhere else and upload.)

 Jonathan, I understand that you want convenience, but there are several
 factors to consider, here:

 1. Unless you download a binary from a trusted source (i.e. not anyone
   on this list, but something like something.apache.org, or from your
   distro's package manager), you should consider yourself compromised.

 2. If you build your own mod_jk, you know it will work with your exact
   environment. No weird problems with slight version mismatches between
   httpd version or other libraries. No questions about which
   architecture's files you need to download, etc.

 3. Building mod_jk from source is relatively trivial. See above. Most
   Linux distros some with a C compiler by default, and all of them
   can trivially install gcc.

 Consider trying it.

 Recently, the Tomcat team decided to stop providing binaries for *NIX
 platforms because of the above (maybe that was just for tcnative, but I
 wouldn't be surprised if the policy is now to avoid rolling binaries for
 any non-Java components).

 Why? Because if we wanted to provide binaries for, say, mod_jk, we need
 to support (at least) two architectures: x86 and x86_64. Also, there are
 4 major versions of Apache httpd: 1.3, 2.0, 2.2, and 2.4. Sometimes,
 even httpd patch level can affect compatibility (though it really
 shouldn't) or maybe it was built against 2.2.11 but the user has 2.2.13
 and wants to know why no binary?.

 We cannot possibly provide enough binaries to make everyone happy. Since
 it's so easy to build mod_jk, we ask users in *NIX environments to just
 do it.

 We do provide binaries for both 32- and 64-bit Microsoft Windows
 environments for Apache httpd, Microsoft IIS and (wtf?) Netscape,
 because those folks rarely have compilers handy.

 If you have any trouble building mod_jk, please don't hesitate to come
 back for help.

Re: RedHat and mod_jk

2011-07-16 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hi,

On RedHat installation of mod_jk is as easy as:

1.
# yum install httpd httpd-devel gcc gcc-c++

2.
Go to http://tomcat.apache.org/download-connectors.cgi and download the
source code (I'm giving an example with 1.2.31 version)
# wget
http://apache.mirror.aussiehq.net.au//tomcat/tomcat-connectors/jk/source/jk-1.2.31/tomcat-connectors-1.2.31-src.tar.gz
3.
# tar -xvzf tomcat-connectors-1.2.31-src.tar.gz

Read docs/webserver_howto/apache.html or native/BUILDING.txt for options.

# cd tomcat-connectors-1.2.31-src/native/
# which apxs
# ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-api-compatibility
# make
# make install

You don't need any Java packages for that.

Also my way of installing JAVA on RedHat (Since many Apps support only Sun's
JDK/JRE):

JAVA INSTALLATION:
--
1. Go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.htmland
download latest Self Extracting Installer.

Put it all under /opt or any other dir. you choose.
[root@vera126 downloads]# ls -l /opt
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  85052342 May 19 11:15 jdk-6u25-linux-i586.bin
[root@vera126 downloads]# cd /opt

# sh jdk-6u25-linux-i586.bin
# ln -s jdk1.6.0_25 jdk

# updatedb;locate javac |grep bin
/opt/jdk1.6.0_25/bin/javac
2.
Here /opt/jdk is the actual JAVA_HOME for your machine. Note this as you
will need it to run the following commands.

alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /opt/jdk/bin/java 100
alternatives --install /usr/bin/jar jar /opt/jdk/bin/jar 100
alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /opt/jdk/bin/javac 100

3.
Finally you should configure alternative to use Sun's JVM as the default
JVM. To do this type:
# /usr/sbin/alternatives --config java

4.
In the future when we update Java, we only need to update this symlink (for
JAVA_HOME)
/opt/jdk

5.
Last check:
[root@vera126 opt]# java -version
java version 1.6.0_25
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_25-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 20.0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)


I've already seen members of this list giving good tips on that.

Cheers,
Leon Kolchinsky

 Hi.

 Recently, other people and myself were looking for a pre-packaged mod_jk
 binary for a RedHat RHELS system.

 As a result of some investigation (by Mark Eggers on one side, and an
 independent sysadmin of my customer on the other side), things seem to boil
 down to (largely quoted) :

 
 In the RedHat product Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (RHELS), there is
 no repository containing a pre-packaged mod_jk module.

 To obtain such a package, the client has to purchase the separate RedHat
 package JBoss Enterprise Web Server, which contains mod_jk.
 

 I would suppose that RedHat has good lawyers, and that they are allowed
 to do such a thing.  Personally, I find this a bit cheeky, specially from
 a company that presents itself as a champion of Open Source.
 It is not an unmitigated feeling, because on the other hand I also
 recognise that mod_jk is a complex piece of software, and that supporting it
 for customers certainly has a cost.

 But whatever the real merits of my personal feelings in the matter,
 there are people (even sysadmins) who are comfortable with the idea of
 installing a software package from sources; but there are also many people
 who simply do not have the time to go through the hassle, and people who are
 uncomfortable with the installation of such packages (because of maintenance
 reasons, patches etc.), and people who are just not allowed to install
 anything that is not part of the standard corporate repository.

 In the practice thus, it probably means that a number of people will no
 longer use mod_jk on RHEL systems in the future, and I find this a pity,
 because even from a purely technical point of view, it is always better to
 have some alternatives.  And there are things which you can do with mod_jk,
 which you cannot with mod_proxy_ajp and/or mod_proxy_http (and probably
 vice-versa).

 Anyway, I wonder if anyone here has another opinion on the matter.

Re: mod_jk linux binaries

Hi,

You can compile mod_jk and it's pretty straight forward (please use latest
source, mine is just an example):
1.
# yum install httpd httpd-devel gcc gcc-c++

2.
Go to http://tomcat.apache.org/download-connectors.cgi and download the
source code:
# wget
http://apache.mirror.aussiehq.net.au//tomcat/tomcat-connectors/jk/source/jk-1.2.31/tomcat-connectors-1.2.31-src.tar.gz
3.
# tar -xvzf tomcat-connectors-1.2.31-src.tar.gz

Read docs/webserver_howto/apache.html or native/BUILDING.txt for options.

# cd tomcat-connectors-1.2.31-src/native/
# which apxs
# ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs --enable-api-compatibility
# make
# make install

Cheers,
Leon Kolchinsky

Yes there is -
http://apache.mirror.aussiehq.net.au//tomcat/tomcat-connectors/jk/tomcat-connectors-1.2.32-src.tar.gz

Check out this page -  http://tomcat.apache.org/download-connectors.cgi

 Ok
 Thank you very much

 I was hoping I could find already compiled binaries (there are the 1.2.31
 in the archives, but not the 1.2.32).
 I'll do that.

 Thanks

Re: mod_jk linux binaries

2012-01-06 Thread Leon Kolchinsky
Hi,

I think we had this discussion regarding rpm packages etc., several month
ago (try to search archives).
AFAIK RedHat distributing mod_jk rpms with their JBoss product.
Try to check with them or build your own ;)

 Yes

 But I wish to package the binaries with my application to distribute them
 to my partners.
 I was hoping I could find binaries for all environments (it will take me
 some time to build them on each possible environment), like apache was
 doing with previous releases (for instance 1.2.31).
 Has apache completely stopped distributing linux binaries since 1.2.32 ?
 Or will they be available later ?

 Thanks

 These are the sources. For 1.2.32 there are indeed not binaries for
 Linux available. Building is simple and ensures compatibility with your
 Apache Webserver binary.
