Hi Richard!

Don't know which talk you are refering to but if it's this one[1] you
mean; they are talking about the APR variant of the AJP Connector. I.e.
the one written in C. Not the NIO one written in Java.

And while mod_jk isn't developed further it's still available as a
plugin from most distros.
