Summary: Missing attribute in the AJP Connector (jk) configuration Doc.

Description Fred K 2008-03-31 12:49:34 UTC

In the mod_jk documentation:

I see correctly the description for the Avdanced Worker Directive "secret":

"You can set a secret keyword on the Tomcat AJP Connector. Then only requests from workers with the same secret keyword will be accepted. Use request.useSecret="true" and request.secret="secret key word" in your Tomcat AJP Connector configuration. 

If you set a secret on a load balancer, all its members will inherit this secret. 

This feature has been added in jk 1.2.12."

However, I do not see anymore these request. directives explained in the "Apache Tomcat Configuration Reference" > "The AJP Connector"

Note: that the syntax changed from Tomcat 4.1 to Tomcat 5.5 (I do not know about 5.0).

org.apache.ajp.tomcat4.Ajp13Connector was only one attribute

It might be a good idea to add a line for these 2 attributes even if just simply refer to the jk documentation.

Thanks - Fred
