Subject [users@httpd] Question about mod_rewrite
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 15:32:53 GMT

I've been looking for a web server that would be capable of forwarding
incoming messages to proper handlers and I've come across the rewrite mod
for Apache.  From what I've read it seems like it would work, but just to
confirm, can anyone tell me if it would be able to handle the following

1) Message comes in to http://myserv/dullpage/  it will show a page hosted
by Apache HTTP Server.
2) Message comes into http://myserv/searchengine/  it will show Google's
webpage (yet still show http://myserv/searchengine/ as the address).
3) Message comes into http://myserv/soaprequest/ it will forward the message
to http://soaphandler/

With all of this happening without the end user ever knowing s/he's going
outside of http://myserv/.

Also, for example 3, it'd be needed that the response message from
http://soaphandler/ comes back through the Apache HTTP Server which then
passes it back to the client.
