If you are reading this because you are having problems with JK 1.2.18:

You have to define rewrite_rule_file registry entry and create an empty file to make up for a bug in JK 1.2.18.


p dir=”ltr”>If you are reading this because of a mysterious 'The specified module could not be found' message:

  • delete isapi_redirect.properties if you have one around.
  • keep messing around til it works.

I don't know what the heck is going on in the Apache Tomcat team but Tomcat connectors project is in a rather chaotic (well, that's the polite way to put it) state so, unless you feel like paying New Atlanta's ridiculous fees for ServletExec, just dance and jiggle til it works. In my case, everything started working mysteriously after cycling through multiple versions of isapi_redirect.dll. I would have complained in earnest if it didn't feel like kick Open Source Santa between the legs.
