Subject: Caching "virtual directory" requests

Hello everyone,

I'm running Apache 2.2.11 with mod_jk and mod_cache. Apache doesn't seem to be caching requests
for "virtual directories" (i.e. requests for URIs that don't end in a file name). My back-end
Tomcat application uses such URLs (e.g. http://<host->/<virtual-directory<http://%3chost-%3e/%3cvirtual-directory>>)
which result in a dynamic page being generated. Requests to such URIs come to Apache, they
are forwarded to Tomcat using mod_jk, but the response is not cached. Is there a way to convince
Apache to cache these URLs?
