Another advantage of using RewriteRule over ProxyPass is that you get a lot better logging
provided you set "RewriteLogLevel 3". That may help you understand why it loops...

I understood that you originally ended up with a redirect, but I thought that it might have
been the application that was generating the redirect.

I take it you are using Apache 2.2 ?

ASCS, thanks for your reply.

Your suggestion (and several permutations of it) were not successful; I don't quite understand
why, but it created an infinite loop.

I don't think the original situation (where it *works*, but the URL is rewritten in the user's
browser) is due to ProxyPass being evaluated first, because the URL did indeed get rewritten
1st (it's just that it wasn't transparent to the user).

I believe this is more likely to be a bug in the way the mod_proxy_ajp and mod_rewrite interact,
rather than a matter of configuration.

But I really appreciate more suggestions and/or workarounds!
Thanks, pete
