GlassFish V3 has improved the way to front GlassFish with Apache HTTP Server. Unlike the V2 way where users had to copy tomcat-ajp.jar and commons-*.jar, you can just enable mod_jk in V3 using the network-listener's attribute "jk-enabled" without copying any additional jars into its lib directory.

event of FISL)
The event was sponsored by Sun Microsystems. Many thanks to Sou Java

functionality can be easily extended using add-ons such as an OSGi
