Goal: Install mod_jk for Apache http 2.2.x with minimal effort!
Such that Apache http can be tested as a front for Glassfish 2ur2 (rather than the usual Tomcat) using the same mod_jk connector...
A handy binary of mod_jk for Solaris and the right version of Apache http didn't seem readily available.
Here are some quick notes on Solaris, Blastwave, Apache httpd and mod_jk
Decided to try out the Blastwave software repository for CSW, site is here http://www.blastwave.org/
Rough steps as follows:
which is essentially:
pkgadd -d http://www.blastwave.org/pkg_get.pkg
/opt/csw/bin/pkg-get -i wget
/opt/csw/bin/pkg-get -i apache2
/opt/csw/bin/pkg-get -i ap2_mod_jk
cp -p /var/pkg-get/admin-fullauto /var/pkg-get/admin
check the exact version installed:
stop existing service installed as part of SXDE:
svcadm disable apache22
check lib dsos:
start the server manually:
Configure Apache http and mod_jk
Configure Glassfish with libs etc
Test web applications including failure conditions
Set Blastwave installed version as a service
