I can imagine a shared hosting or mixed development environment where servlets/JSP provided only a small amount of the served content using Tomcat as a back end via jk/jk2/mod_proxy. But I have multiple sites hosted on my own server, and they all share a single Tomcat image... If for some reason I really needed Apache to support some non-servlet environment, I'd just get another IP address and run Apache alongside Tomcat, rather than in front of it. But hopefully that'll not ever be necessary. :-) -- Hassan Schroeder ----------------------------- hassan at webtuitive.com Webtuitive Design === (+1) 408-938-0567 === http://webtuitive.com dream. code.
