    Reverse Proxy Configuration

    Harald Wellmann Novice

      I would like to try out the new reverse proxy functionality in WIldFly 8.0.0.Final. This is mentioned in the release notes, but I can't find any documentation. Does anybody have an example config?

       

      Thanks,

      Harald

          Hey,

           

          it is simple, just add reverse-proxy handler under <handlers>

          example:

          <handlers>

                  <reverse-proxy name="reverse-proxy" connections-per-thread="30">

                      <host name="ajp://localhost:8080" instance-id="myRoute"/>

                  </reverse-proxy>

              </handlers>

          then just reference your handler in host configuration.

            Thanks, that got me going, but I had to add this to get rid of a 404:

             

                <location name="/" handler="reverse-proxy"/>

             

            Also, I got a 500 when trying

             

                <host name="http://www.jboss.org" instance-id="myRoute"/>

             

            I had to add the port number like this:

              

                <host name="http://www.jboss.org:80" instance-id="myRoute"/>

                apart form that it seems to work fine. Should we default to 80/443?
