Subject Create a proxy server over Tomcat
Date Fri, 26 Jan 2007 20:27:30 GMT
Hi everybody,


I am looking for a solution based on Tomcat, but I am not sure how much
efforts are needed. Can you give me some suggestions? Thanks.


What I need to do:


(1)     Get a HTTPRequest, then based on the URI and content to
determine the destination. It will be forwarded through a secured

(2)     For a HTTPS request. It will establish SSL over the tunnel,
forward it to the other end of the tunnel.


If this function is developed using Servlet, it is just too late, and it
seems have little control over the underlying connections. Therefore, I
want to have the requests forwarded before reaching 'servlet'. Is that
possible? Which module should I customize?


Thank you.
