If you want to connect Cocoon with Apache httpd in order to serve static/legacy content directly from Apache you have four possibilities ATM (apart from the obsolete Jserv):


mod_webapp

mod_webapp communicates via the new WARP protocol, using Tomcats WarpConnector. You can easily mount whole webapps/contexts.

Advantages

Disadvantages

Sample 1

mounting cocoon as http://host.domain.tld/cocoon/

    WebAppConnection warpConnection warp localhost:8008
    WebAppDeploy cocoon warpConnection /cocoon/

Sample 2

mounting cocoon as http://host.domain.tld/

    WebAppConnection warpConnection warp localhost:8008
    WebAppDeploy cocoon warpConnection /

mod_jk

mod_jk communicates via ajp1.3 protocol using an Ajp13Connector

Advantages

Disadvantages

mod_jk is configured by a configuration file named workers.properties:

Sample for workers.properties

    workers.apache_log=/usr/local/apache2/logs/
    workers.tomcat_home=/usr/jakarta/catalina
    workers.java_home=/usr/java/current
    ps=/
    # Define 3 workers, 2 real ajp13 and one being a loadbalancing worker
    worker.list=worker1 worker2
    # Set properties for worker1 (ajp13)
    worker.worker1.type=ajp13
    worker.worker1.host=host1.domain.tld
    worker.worker1.port=8009
    worker.worker1.lbfactor=50
    worker.worker1.cachesize=10
    worker.worker1.cache_timeout=600
    worker.worker1.socket_keepalive=1
    worker.worker1.socket_timeout=300
    # Set properties for worker2 (ajp13)
    worker.worker2.type=ajp13
    worker.worker2.host=host2.domain.tld
    worker.worker2.port=8009
    worker.worker2.lbfactor=50
    worker.worker2.cachesize=10
    worker.worker2.cache_timeout=600
    worker.worker2.socket_keepalive=1
    worker.worker2.socket_timeout=300
    # Set properties for worker3 (lb) which use worker1 and worker2
    worker.worker3.balanced_workers=worker1,worker2

in your httpd.conf you put your mount directives like

    # mounting only the index
    JkMount /  worker2
    # further, for example for mounting all html files
    JkMount /*.html  worker2
    # further, for example for mounting everything in dir
    JkMount /dir/*  worker2

Things that unfortunately DON'T work!

    JkMount */dir/  worker2
    JkMount **/dir/  worker2
    JkMount /dir1/**/dir/  worker2
    JkMount /dir1/*/dir/*/*.html  worker2
    JkMount /!(images|movies|audio)* worker2

mod_jk2

The very new JK2 communicates via ajp1.3/ajp1.4 using CoyoteConnector+JkCoyoteHandler.

Advantages

Disadvantages

mod_jk2 is configured by a configuration file named workers2.properties. There you define hosts, ports, workers, uri mapping etc:

Sample

workers2.properties mounting cocoon as host.domain.tld/

    [shm]
    file=/usr/jakarta/catalina/work/jk2.shm
    size=1048576

    # Example socket channel, override port and host.
    [channel.socket:host.domain.tld:8009]
    port=8009
    host=127.0.0.1

    # define the worker
    [ajp13:ministrant.leonid:8009]
    channel=channel.socket: host.domain.tld:8009

    # Uri mapping
    [uri:ministrant.leonid/*]
    worker=ajp13: host.domain.tld:8009
    context=/cocoon

Tomcat Connectors

There are some binaries available, as well as source packages for the various Tomcat connectors. The connectors are now in their own project, called jakarta-tomcat-connectors. Unfortunately there is no home page within jakarta.apache.org that I can find, and the online documentation does not point you to the connector download area.

All of the connectors can be found under the following general location:

Explore under this directory for the latest binaries and source packages for all of the connectors.
