Installing Tomcat: how much do versions matter?
Note: this is actually about installing Tomcat on Windows. Sorry if it's wrong to post in this subforum, but I failed to find other subforum more appropriate for this thread. Feel free to move this thread accordingly if it actually belongs in a more appropriate subforum.

I need to install the following components on Windows XP (for ArcIMS):
1) Apache 2.0.43 (MSI installer for Windows, no crypto)
2) JSDK 1.4.1_01
3) Tomcat 4.1.12
4) mod_jk2-2.0.43.dll

Problem is, Apache 2.0.43 and Tomcat 4.1.12 are just nowhere to be found. These are what I got instead:
1) Apache 2.0.63 (MSI installer for Windows, no crypto)
2) JSDK 1.4.1_01
3) Tomcat 4.1.40
4) mod_jk2-2.0.43.dll

The Tomcat 4.1.40 is the JDK 1.4 version, so I think (or hope) there should be no problem with that. However, the Apache is 2.0.63, while the mod_jk2 connector is clearly named mod_jk2-2.0.43.dll. Will I be able to run everything smoothly, or will they just fail?

What if I go with newest version of every component instead? Thus, I'll be using:
1) Apache 2.2.13
2) JSDK 6u16
3) Tomcat 6.0.20
Are those safe choices?

Well you didn't miss the forum, you miss the site it's
Apart from that I don't think an *.so suits you, since it's a source object (it's to linux what a dll is to windows AFAIK).
You look for documentation of apache site there you'll be looking for HTTP Server, Jakarta, and Tomcat projects, all of which have documentation of their own.
Anyway my advice is quit trying to use windows as a server, it's no good for such a job (don't get mad it's just MY advice and opinion).
Good luck with that.
