Subject [users@httpd] Reverse proxy with response update (once again)
Date Mon, 20 Mar 2006 13:44:47 GMT
I re-post this question, I'm sure someone will be able to tell me at least if it's feasible
or not.
I'd like to use httpd as a reverse proxy and modify the response sent by the remote server
with an XSL treatment (via a servlet for example).
Is mod-proxy or mod_rewrite able to do that ?
Thanks a lot,

	Objet : [users@httpd] Reverse proxy with response update

	Hi all, 

	I'm trying to have a special architecture I'm managing with my own java application for now.

	The current flow is : 
	1. Send a request to a reverse proxy server (java servlet on tomcat), for example : http://myreverseproxy/

	2. The servlet fetches content from the remote host, here
	3. When the servlet receives the page, it applies an XSL on the page and send the result
to the client. 

	The flow I would like to have is the same but with Apache having the role of the reverse
proxy server and remove the reverse proxy stuff from my java application.

	With mod_proxy and mod_rewrite, I was able to have the content fetch from a server I specify
in the URL but I really don't know if it's possible to pass the content fetched from a remote
host to my java app for XSL treatment.

	I had a look to mod_proxy_ajp but it seems to only allow redirecting the request to tomcat,
not the response. 
	Is my idea unfeasible with Apache ?
