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.
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. You can also create jk-connectors under different virtual-servers (not just default virtual-server "server" in V2) using the network-listener's "jk-enabled" attribute.
Here are instructions.
(1) Install Apache HTTP Server and mod_jk
(2) Configure workers.properties and httpd.conf
For example, apache2/config/workers.properties
# Define 1 real worker using ajp13
# Set properties for worker1 (ajp13)
LoadModule jk_module /Users/Amy/apache2/modules/mod_jk-1.2.25-httpd-2.2.4.so
# Where to put jk logs
# Set the jk log level [debug/error/info]
# Select the log format
JkLogStampFormat "[%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y] "
# JkOptions indicate to send SSL KEY SIZE,
JkOptions +ForwardKeySize +ForwardURICompat -ForwardDirectories
# JkRequestLogFormat set the request format
JkRequestLogFormat "%w %V %T"
# Send everything for context /examples to worker named worker1 (ajp13)
JkMount /examples/* worker1
(3) Start Apache HTTP Server
(4) Enable mod_jk using the following command
asadmin create-http-listener --listenerport 8009 --listeneraddress 0.0.0.0 --defaultvs server
asadmin set configs.config.server-config.network-config.network-listeners.network-listener.jk-connector.jk-enabled=true
(5) If you are using the glassfish-jk.properties file and not referencing it in httpd.conf, point to it using the following command:
asadmin create-jvm-options -Dcom.sun.enterprise.web.connector.enableJK.propertyFile=domain-dir/config/glassfish-jk.properties
(6) Restart GlassFish
The network-listener attribute "jk-enabled" is available from V3 b53 or later.
