mod_proxy_ajp would be the easiest to use if you are using Apache 2.2. It is part of the Apache distribution so you don't need to install any additional software.

In your httpd.conf you need to make sure that mod_proxy and mod_proxy_ajp are loaded:

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so
LoadModule proxy_ajp_module modules/mod_proxy_ajp.so

Then you can use the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse directives as follows:

ProxyPass /portal ajp://localhost:8009/portal
ProxyPassReverse /portal ajp://localhost:8009/portal

You should consult the Apache 2.2 documentation for a full catalog of the directives available.



mod_jk, or simply just use mod_proxy even though it's not really a Tomcat connector.
