16.6.2. Configure JBoss EAP 6 to Communicate with Apache Mod_jk

Overview

The mod_jk HTTP connector has a single component, the mod_jk.so module loaded by the HTTPD. This module receives client requests and forwards them to the container, in this case JBoss EAP 6. JBoss EAP 6 also needs to be configured to accept these requests and send replies back to the HTTPD.

In order for JBoss EAP 6 to be able to communicate with the Apache HTTPD, it needs to have the AJP/1.3 HTTPD connector enabled. This connector is present by default in the following configurations:
  • In a managed domain, in server groups using the ha and full-ha profiles, and the ha or full-ha socket binding group. The other-server-group server group is configured correctly in a default installation.
  • In a standalone server, the standalone-ha and standalone-full-ha profiles are configured for clustered configurations. To start the standalone server with one of these profiles, issue the following command, from the EAP_HOME/ directory. Substitute the appropriate profile name.
    [user@host bin]$ ./bin/standalone.sh --server-config=standalone-ha.xml
