Tomcat4 and AJP12 Connector

Alessandro A. Garbagnati

Tomcat 4.0 doesn't support the AJP12 protocol.
That is an old protocol that was originally designed for the old Apache JServ, but since Tomcat 3.1.x has been developed, they Jakarta Apache group have started to reengineer and develop the new version of the protocol, that is AJP13.
The goal was to drop the old AJP12 protocol, that was considered not efficient, not really fast and not optimized for the new Tomcat.
