    Using virtual hosts with JBoss-Jetty

    Marcus Pecher Newbie

      Hi,
      I want to be able to have the same instance of JBoss-Jetty take request for
      different hosts (www.site1.com --> site1.ear and www.site2.com --> site2.ear) etc

      I searched the manual, Jetty JavaDoc etc but don't seem to be able to get this working.
      Ok, by my understanding I need to:

      1. Modify the jboss-service.xml, adding:

      www.site1.com
      /site1
      C:\jboss-3.0.1\server\default\deploy\site1.war


      2. Modify the jboss-web.xml for site1.war and add
      <virtual-host>site1</virtual-host>

      This doesn't seem to work (even though no exceptions etc are thrown).

      Does anyone know the how to do this? (The doco doesn't give any good/complete examples).

      Cheers,
      Marcus.

          There are two deployment mechanisms available to you :

          1) Jetty's original, proprietary configuration file (now the ConfigurationElement in jboss-service.xml).

          2) Via JBoss (deploy/, JMX, etc...)

          If you use both, you will most likely confuse Jetty.

          To get back to your problem, look back through this forum for a posting of the JBoss/Jetty FAQ. I think it contains an item on how you can attach an app to virtual hosts via a WEB-INF/jetty-web.xml.

          I will be updating the FAQ tonight with another item. If I do not see the item that I am describing already there, I will see if I can find the mails that went around about this and add something to the FAQ.

          Let me know how you get on.

            Thanks Jules,

            Got it working using only <virtual-host> tag inside the jboss-web.xml for each .ear/.war (thanks Jan Bartel).

            I suppose what confused me was some conflicting doco.
            In the Jetty forum, Greg Wilkins mentioned that using the

            >
            > test.mydomain.com
            > /
            > <SystemProperty name="jetty.webapp" default
            > ="./webapps/default"/>
            > /etc/webdefault.xml
            > false
            >

            is not recommended for JBoss-Jetty bundle. But nowhere in the doco does it mention this.

            Maybe when you update the FAQ, you can point out any differences like this b/w using Jetty by itself and
            bundled with JBoss etc.

            Cheers,
            Marcus.

              I've updated the FAQ - see the 'How do I configure the Jetty Service ?'
