comment How to expire image and force reload in Apache only when file in server changes
I'd say: Don't worry about additional work for the server unless you've measured that this is a problem. Otherwise you're creating the most complicated scenario and updates will always need to have that (potentially unnecessary) optimization in mind. Make it work first, then tune it if necessary. Or, if you really want to go the most complicated route: Add the timestamp only when the file was modified within the last 10 minutes / 1 hour (whatever your cache duration is). But don't tell anyone that I've suggested that.

Edited. Thinking of it - I might rearrange and make the last paragraph on "premature optimization being the root of all evil" more prominent at the beginning of the answer... (but not now)

comment Running Apache Tomcat 8 on port 80
You're right - I've mentioned it due to "nothing else being involved". I'll reorder my answer. In fact, I'm so strongly preferring the reverse proxy solution that I am only aware of jsvc, but have never considered using it myself. And thinking more about it than yesterday when I quickly answered this question, iptables is yet another option

comment Unable to link IIS8 and Tomcat7 by ISAPI on Windows Server 2012
The answer is old, but maybe you (or someone) still is puzzled on why localhost sometimes is working and sometimes it isn't: These days it's often aliased to ::1, which is the IPV6 version of localhost. If a server only answers on IPV4, naturally you can't reach it. Happy 20th birthday to IPV6.

comment Using TLS 1.2 and java 6
ok, now I get it: Your web application will connect to some other application and needs to talk TLS 1.2... Not sure if such a workaround is worth going after. Establishing a proxy - either a newer Java-version or OpenSSL will certainly increase complexity, lower maintainability and introduce many opportunities for getting it wrong and making the whole system less secure than expected with a newer version of the protocol. Good luck is all I can say. I'd strongly opt for the upgrade of the current application. Any effort there reduces complexity, rather than increase it.

Do you mean that Tomcat needs to actually see the 1.2 connection or is it enough to terminate TLS on Apache?

Can you post links to the other places where you already asked? This way one could see what else you already tried or if it's been solved already.
