Why tomcat AJP connector need to send GET_BODY_CHUNK message to Apache mod_jk while reading request body. Why doesn’t it make use of Request Content-Length header already sent to it to decide how much body it still has to read from mod_jk.

Is it required to have some throttling capability in tomcat i.e. tomcat container will send this message if it is ready to take and process the next AJP packet.

Because there is no guarantee that the declared body length and the actual body length are the same. There are multiple reasons why they may be different including:

  • invalid request
  • request aborted during upload
