Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-845) Jetty support for virtual servers
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2005 15:45:39 GMT
    [ ] 

David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-845:

Does virtual server == virtual host?  If so, there is an impedance mismatch between jetty
and tomcat.  Jetty allows you to set an array of virtual host names for a web app, whereas
tomcat allows you to set a single host, and then add aliases to the host.  Offhand I don't
see how to reconcile these two models and think it may be better to respect the differences
and include a custom xml element in the geronimo-web plan.  In general I find the current
extension method in geronimo-web unsatisfactory and think we need to evaluate putting an "any"
element in with specialized xml builders or using schema inheritance to support multiple web

ps. I thought there already was an jira entry for this issue but can't find it at the moment.

> Currently, Tomcat provides virtual server support via a container-specific configuration
extension.  However, our Jetty container implementation should also support virtual servers,
and then we should switch to using a top-level XML element in geronimo-web.xml to hold the
virtual server name.
