I am just wondering if this issue will be fixed anytime in the near future. We have a few instances where we have an apache use the mod_cluster module for jboss but also use a websphere plugin. The problem is mod_cluster does not properly ignore the root context causing problems with anything not defined by this module. The following is what I found pertaining to this issue:
According to this, the problem was a bug and would be resolved in the next version after 1.1.3. I do not see any new versions released since then. Is there some other fix available for this besides waiting for the next final revision to be released? We did turn off auto enable context but we would prefer to have it properly exclude root.
You are right, thats the current state, but fix is not 1.1.3 but 1.1.4 (or 1.2.0).
As an easy workaround, why not just undeploy the root context (ROOT.war)? I am quite positive you dont need it in production.
