Subject RE: jsessionid in URL causes Apache/Tomcat to product 404 error
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2001 14:06:51 GMT
One of the advantages of mod_jk is that it handles ";jsessionid"
automatically.  I would recommend using it over mod_jserv.

However, to deal with ";jsessionid" with mod_jserv in the past,
I have used:

<Location ~ "/.*;jsessionid=.*">
    SetHandler jserv-servlet
</Location>

Cheers,
Larry
