Subject [users@httpd] Re: Unable to have Server Sent Events (SSE) working properly in Apache + Tomcat
Date Sat, 20 Apr 2019 17:12:43 GMT

Yes, Apache can !
I found a way to have SSE working in Apache + Tomcat by replacing the AJP connector with the
very simple http one.
In Apache config : 
# This statment prevents Apache from redirecting to the local URL.
# Oddly, it is unnecessary when using the AJP Connector...
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass /webapp1 

And in Tomcat config : 
<Connector port="8016" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" proxyPort="80"/>

I don't know if this is the right answer to the initial problem, but it gets me closer to
the goal... 

For now, I'll try 1) to find (if any) the right config for AJP and 2) to have the http config
working with SSL and SSE.

Objet: Unable to have Server Sent Events (SSE) working properly in Apache + Tomcat 

Hi all, 

I'm using Apache 2.4.10 on Debian tied with Tomcat 8.0.28. 
Tomcat hosts several Web Apps, all routed through a ProxyPass directive (such as ProxyPass
/webapp1 ajp://, ProxyPass /webapp2 ajp://,
and so on). 

My Web Apps works fine, excepted when it comes to broadcast notifications through SSE. 
After a few minutes, Tomcat goes crazy, stops serving pages (HTTP 500) and sometimes mixes
SSE contents with regular HTML flow. 

Important notice : in development environment, all the SSE stuff works perfectly, that is
when we run Tomcat without Apache, under Windows 7 / 10. 
This detail and what I read in the logs convince me that the problem lies in Apache. 

If I'm not wrong, has someone got some hints about the config I should set in Apache ? 
Or is Apache definitevely unable to process SSE requests and I should consider moving to NginX

Thanks a lot for you help, 

Additional infos :
