Argh, this was supposed to go to the list, too...

Well, that is wrong, too:

  ProxyPass /mydir http://www.domain.com:8080/mydir/

should be:

  ProxyPass /mydir/ http://www.domain.com:8080/mydir/


The paths should match up as one is replaced by the other.  Otherwise
requests will be routed as:

  http://www.domain.com:8080/mydir//foo/bar.html

Now, when you go to:

  http://mydomain.com.com/mydir/foo/bar.html

it will get reverse proxied to:

  http://www.domain.com:8080/mydir/foo/bar.html

provided that it is actually getting to that virtual host in the first place :)

When you say it does not work, what do you mean?  Are you getting an
error?  What error?  Have you checked logs/mydomain.com-access_log to
see if it was served by that virtual host?  Have you checked access
logs on www.domain.com:8080 to see if it got there?  Have you checked
your error logs?

What are the HTTP headers coming back to the browser?  Perhaps there
is another redirect in there and then you will need an additional line
after the ProxyPass line:

  ProxyPassReverse /mydir/ http://www.domain.com:8080/mydir/

Are you trying to reverse proxy to the same machine?  If so, why?  Why
don't you just listen to port 80 for your java pages?
