Is there any reason to define multiple AJP connectors in tomcat? Is it wasted resources by doing so?

Well, sure, there are potential uses, if you potentially need to have different config parameters on different connectors.

But, whether it makes sense for your deployment? If you don't see a need for it, then you probably don't need extras. Is there a specific use case you're contemplating?

No, this is a configuration done by a contractor. Can't see any reason for the separate AJP connectors but wanted to see if there was some rationale beyond obfuscating the configuration. – Adam Breaux Jan 27 '12 at 15:21
