apache module mod_jk
I couldn't find any sites for installing mod_jk in centos 6 with the help of yum ? Isn't there any sites for it? I wanted to avoid the src file installation as much as possible. Thank you for your input.

If you're running CentOS 6 you are probably running httpd 2.2 which has no support for mod_jk. If you are looking for a connector module to talk to Tomcat use mod_proxy_ajp with mod_proxy. Apache's site has info on the directives used for proxy_ajp.

I have installed mod_jk for httpd 2.2 manually without yum and it is working fine but I want to use yum to installed it. mod_proxy_ajp still not matured as mod_jk

The reason you cant install it with yum is that it reads your apache version.

Could you 'splain what you mean? Is mod_proxy_ajp missing features that you rely on?

mod_proxy_ajp does not support large packet sizes and and it is not advance in load balancer as mod_jk that is what I have found in web and I cannot use mod_proxy_ajp as we use both larger packets and load balancer.

Makes sense. I checked EPEL and did not see mod_jk for EL6.

Unless you can find it in another (trusted) repo, I'd say you already did the right thing -- install from source. Not a great solution for maintainability, but there's sometimes no other good choice.
