I have read the outline provided in the feature page for the Tomcat appliance ( http://www.turnkeylinux.org/appliances/tomcat ). In general, Tomcat/Apache integration offers a rich set of options. I'm trying to sort out more details about what is pre-configured in this appliance, and how to customize the configuration further.
- One item of interest is configuring Apache to serve static content and Tomcat to only serve web services content via servlets. It appears to me that this is not configured in the Turnkey Tomcat appliance. Am I right?
- Beyond that I want to be able to configure multiple Tomcats per Apache.
- Third, I want to know how to test whether these configurations are working. The tests I've found around the web usually require using a browser to load localhost. Is it equivalent to use the LAN IP address from a different computer? The Turnkey appliance is a server (thankfully) and has no browser.
- Another worthwhile piece of information - Turnkey team, which Apache pages or other web resources, or which book did you use in doing your mod_jk/Tomcat/Apache configuration?
Since this is my first post, I want to thank the Turnkey team for the incredible service and resources they have given to the community. You have accelerated the uptake and delivery of many of the best open source projects available. Hats off to you!
