By putting https on the JBoss servers, you are protecting the
communication between the proxy and the JBoss servers. If you want to
protect the communication between user and proxy, then you need to
configure SSL on apache. Furthermore, since the proxy is not, you would require new certificates for the proxy, that are
correct for the hostname that the proxy responds to.

If you dont need to protect comms between proxy and JBoss, then just
drop the https from JBoss. There is no problem with having https
balancer members, but the certificates must match the host name. If you
continue to have proxy problems with https balancer members, then please
set LogLevel debug, and show us the error log resulting in one request
through the proxy.
