    Dynamic Virtual Hosts

    Brian Shacklett Newbie

      I'm setting up a development environment using Apache httpd and JBoss. I want to set up two different areas for each site: development and staging. The development area will be for constantly changing files and will reside in /home/[username]/development/[domain]. The staging area will be more for testing and bug fixing and will reside at /development/[domain]. What I'm trying to figure out right now is how to get JBoss to work with files in both locations. I'd like [username].[domain].dev.myserver.tld to go to the development area of the specified username and [domain].staging.myserver.tld to go to the staging directory.

      It looks like it's quite easy to do this all with Apache. A site located at: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/vhosts/mass.html has all the info I need to get it going using mod_vhost_alias and possibly mod_rewrite. I haven't found any information at all, however, on how to do something like this with JBoss.

      I'd be very grateful for any info. Also, if you've got a better idea of how I might set things up (especially with how to get to a specific user's development folder) I'd be very interested in hearing that as well.
