I'd like to use the apache jk2 in front of jboss. However, I have a small problem. In the httpd.conf file I would normally need to use an alias to point to the webapp directoy. Using straight tomcat this is easy:
Alias /test "D:/Programs/jakarta/tomcat/5.0.28/webapps/test/"
However, with jboss, I drop an ear into the /deploy directory and it ends up in some wierdly named directory like tmp\deploy\tmp458310.0.1-dsr.ear-contents\homesuite.war but the name of this directory changes everytime the webapp is redeployed. Is there any way to specify where jboss will unpack the ear?
Why are you trying to point to the deploy directory? JK2 talks directly to the Tomcat server/container, so you just need to add the mapping to JK2. It's defined in the workers2.properties (from mod_jk2) file in $APACHE/conf.
