Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-5219) Servlet Bridge does not work if not mounted as root servlet
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2016 14:16:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5219?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15204292#comment-15204292

Anders Engström commented on FELIX-5219:

I'm following up to my own comment here :).

So, I *think* I've found a fix: https://github.com/metamorph/felix/commit/c5c9c58769cfe2d238fe4368a8f5633884f25f68

For some libraries to work correctly when running as servlets inside an OSGi
container the HttpServletRequest must be consistent. This applied to
"osgi-jax-rs-connector" and to the "Felix WebConsole".

Basically, it must be possible to construct the correct request path by
concatening "contextPath", "servletPath" and "pathInfo" (so that it matches a
proper subset of the original requestURI).

In order to achieve this in the case of a proxied request, the servletPath that
should be propagated to servlets registered in the OSGi container is the
servletPath of the original request *+* the servletPath from the

With the changes in place it seems that both osgi-jax-rs-connector and Felix WebConsole works
fine with 3.x of the proxy/bridge.

[~cziegeler] : If you'd like I can create a proper pull-request to the Felix Github project
and we can discuss it further there?

> As described in the email thread http://www.mail-archive.com/users%40felix.apache.org/msg17074.html
-- the Http Servlet Proxy/Bridge does not work when binding the Proxy Servlet something else
than {{/*}}.
> It seems that the bug was introduced in the 3.* versions - the proxy/bridge works as
expected with version {{2.3.2}}.
> I've created a reference project at https://github.com/metamorph/http-osgi-bridge that
demonstrates the bug.
