This posting is an act of desperation! :-) My company is within 1 hour of its expected launch time for its new Web site, and we have discovered that we need to accomplish the following to make this a successfull launch!...
We need to configure JBoss to redirect all requests to /~* (* implies any name) to an external Web server. My partner and I have read through many, many pages within the forums, wiki, and other Web sites and have tested many different configurations without success. Does anyone have any specific instructions on how to make this work? We are running JBoss 4.0.1.
Again, an answer that resolves this issue would be fantastic and is desperately needed! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration...
The following block of text was being used in our apache conf file to accomplish this same task prior to our usage of JBoss.
CustomLog /usr/local/www/comftp/testsrt/logs/srt-access_log combined
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /export/home/www/.../.../cgi-bin/
ScriptAlias /_vti_bin/_vti_adm/ /export/home/www/.../.../_vti_bin/_vti_a
ScriptAlias /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/ /export/home/www/.../.../_vti_bin/_vti_a
ScriptAlias /_vti_bin/ /export/home/www/.../.../_vti_bin/
RedirectMatch /~(.*) http://www.site.com/~$1
If you are already experienced at apache administration and have a solution that works with Apache have you considered fronting your application with Apache and using MOD_JK to pass the requests through for the JBoss application and your existing configuration for this last minute requirement?
