Yeah, I reckon it does not use real regexp.

I am trying to decide now whether to just leave Apache out of the 
equation altogether and either use readers in Cocoon to serve the 
static HTML, or use TomCat or Jetty directly.

The Apache -> mod_jk -> TomCat/Jetty setup, is just not designed with 
Servlets that serve '/' or '/*' in mind, specially if you also want to 
serve other stuff directly from Apache.

Furthermore, none of the tricks they talk about in the dox for mod_jk 
for serving static material out of the webapp via Apache even remotely 

It is a major PIA IMHO!

Anyway, thanks for your help.

regards Jeremy
