Subject [jira] Updated: (CONTINUUM-1737) Https proxy in front of jetty doesn't work very well.
Date Tue, 06 May 2008 23:00:22 GMT


Brett Porter updated CONTINUUM-1737:

         Assignee:     (was: Martin van den Bemt)
    Fix Version/s: 1.x

is this a problem in jetty5 (embedded in 1.1), or all versions (since we default to jetty6
in 1.2, and primarily distribute as a webapp)?

> It is not a bug in continuum, but in Jetty. The continuum system relies heavily on sendRedirects.
Jetty however makes the Location http header an absolute url instead of a relative url.  The
simple fix is to add a filter to override sendRedirect. I made this filter (I have this fix
available), but before it could end up in continuum it is best to have a more generic solution
or make it configurable to use to filter or not (in case of issues in other containers, which
I haven't tested yet). 
> Feedback welcome.
> Not asking for a fix, I will provide it and will use this issue to track it and also
add documentation on how to set this all up.
