That would be me, and I am doing what I can when I can. Although I should be doing more ;) Kinda in a holding pattern till the migration is completed. Since I am pretty sure ebuilds will have to be tweaked.

It's in overlay, or latest version. Ebuild works, and does what the current mod_jk one does. tomcat 5.5 and mod_jk in experimental overlay should be good to go for installation and use. I did start adding support to mod_jk's ebuild to compile the jni stuff. Basically I am waiting on the merge stuff to finish, as it may have some deps there. Not sure. Part of it was where to install the jni stuff. In jdk home? In apache modules dir? In /usr/lib? If I should use current so call to do that or new java one. Any input, comments, feedback, etc there and I can finish that off. Was going to compile/install the jni stuff with the Java use flag or etc. Not sure there. JNI compile support is in ebuild, install is not. -- Sincerely, William L. Thomson Jr. Obsidian-Studios, Inc. -- gentoo-java@g.o mailing list
