The AJP Connector


The AJP Connector element represents a Connector component that communicates with a web connector via the AJP protocol. This is used for cases where you wish to invisibly integrate JBoss Web into an existing (or new) Apache installation, and you want Apache to handle the static content contained in the web application, and/or utilize Apache's SSL processing.

This connector supports load balancing when used in conjunction with the jvmRoute part of the session. jvmRoute are automatically added to session when AS7 is used in a cluster, like started as:

bin/standalone.sh -server-config clustering-standalone.xml

The native connectors supported with this JBoss Web release are:

  • JK 1.2.x with any of the supported servers
  • mod_proxy on Apache httpd 2.x (included by default in Apache HTTP Server 2.2), with AJP enabled: see the httpd docs for details.
  • mod_cluster 1.1.x
