Subject RE: setting the path in the session cookie (Tomcat 402b)
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2002 12:57:09 GMT
Hi, Jean-Frederic,

one more addition:

This works fine:

	RewriteRule ^/istore/something(.*) http://mydomain/istore$1 [P]

Cookies work to (because the "/istore" will be present in both the original
and the proxied url). You can then use:
http://mydomain/istore/something/aServlet (which eventually will end at
http://mydomain/istore/aServlet


I want this to work:

    RewriteRule !^/istore(.*) - [C]
    RewriteRule (.*) http://mydomain/istore$1 [P]

So any URL not containing the "/istore" prefix should be rewritten by
prepending "/istore". Then you can use URLs like: http://mydomain/anything.
This is what you normally do with Apache-served sites. I don't want to see
no application context in my urls basically.

Hope you get what I try to express!

Cheers,
János (=Jean in Hungarian :)
