Subject Re: What good is WARP? Correction
Date Mon, 06 May 2002 13:09:02 GMT
One other suggestion that I use for Tomcat & Apache 2 is the reverse
proxy.  You need to enable your proxy module, and then add lines like -

  RedirectMatch 301 /examples /examples/
  ProxyPass /examples/
  ProxyPassReverse /examples/

 - for each servlet container.  I'm not sure what the performance
advantages/disadvatages are, but I haven't noticed any problems.  The
advantage (if you consider it an advantage) is the client still
communicates over port 80, instead of being redirected to 8080.

My apologies,

I actually used the following redirect, not an Alais to make Tomcat

    Redirect permanent /tomcat 

This seems to do the same thing as mod_webapp.  I cna refer to all my
servlets and JSP's as /tomcat/servlet/whatever.  Am I sacrificing any
performance this way?
