I think we have had this discussion before, and it didn't result in changing
anyone's mind. I recently did a bunch of load testing about all the various
settings in mod_jk, and I should have tried mod_proxy or mod_proxy_ajp. If
they perform the same, I guess mod_proxy is better... especially if it can
translate env vars to something Java (e.g. for cosign authentication).

Here is a comparison:

His conclusion is to use mod_jk if you can, which is how I feel, but like
him, it is probably because that is what I have used and am comfortable
with... :)

Maybe I should stress more that the instructions there are just how I do
things, not how everyone should. E.g. there are things you can do to lock
down apache, things should probably run as different users than each other,
etc. It is just a quick start example.

Having said that, if you know the directives and configs for mod_proxy and
want to post it on the page in addition to mod_jk, that will give people an
option there... I'd be interested to see that since I think the is kind of limiting for certain kinds of load balancing...
