HTTP/HTTPS is used for MCMP - AJP is used for request/response forwarding.
But, you raise a good point.
Jean-Frederic, why doesn't AS7 define an AJP connector by default, like we had in
AS5/6 and EAP5?

Subject: Connection between JBoss 7 and httpd in mod-cluster
Hi Paul, Jean-Frederic,
the manual (section 9.3 SSL Configuration) states that "the
communication channel between application servers and httpd proxies
HTTP by default".
I thought the communication between appservers and httpd mod-cluster
uses AJP by default ? Has this changed to HTTP ?
I changed the following 2 things (in standalone-ha.xml in AS 7):
<connector name="ajp" protocol="AJP/1.3"
<socket-binding name="ajp" port="8009"/>
and then "netstat -na |grep 8009" and the mod-cluster-manager
command" actually showed that AJP was now used, compared to HTTP
Do I have to enable this to actually make the workers communicate
httpd via AJP and not via HTTP ?
Or am I mistaken and this is only used for MCMP, but not
request/response forwarding ?
