virtual host will be present in ajp14 :!
Even more It will be the KEY :

- virtual1 -----------> context A
           -----------> context B ....

- virtual2 -----------> context A
           -----------> context C ....

Easy using a separator like : or others not found in std URI....

and take a look at autoconf I'm finishing rigth now ?

I must mention I forget about welcome and didn't know how to handle 
security rigth now. But it wasn't in ajp14 stricto-senso....

I'll commit more native code tomorrow and java later (may be on
