Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache Forward Proxy with App Server Integration.
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 15:16:40 GMT

of Apache... I would suggest you review those to get a basic
understanding, at which point we'd be better able to answer
your questions.

So in this context, I am looking at this AS as an extension of Proxy server.

On the same box with the proxy or a different one? What kind of application are we talking
about here?
