Garrett,

I am heading out for the evening, but your configuration is similar to one
on John Turner's site, so take a look at:

Hope that helps.

I'm sorry, I didn't make this clear.  I should've discussed my environment:

Win2K
Apache 2.0
Tomcat 4.1
mod_jk installed.

The question I have is, what am I missing?  I've changed the httpd.conf
file, and now at the end it has:

LoadModule jk_module modules/mod_jk.dll
JkWorkersFile conf/workers.properties
JkLogFile logs/mod_jk.log
JkLogLevel info
JkLogStampFormat "[%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Y] "
JkOptions +ForwardKeySize +ForwardURICompat -ForwardDirectories
JkRequestLogFormat "%w %V %T"
JkMount /*.jsp worker1
JkMount /*Servlet worker1

However, this doesn't cut it.  I can't understand why... :(

As for the RequestDispatcher/request.sendRedirect, yup, that's EXACTLY what
I needed.  SNIFF - I look at the j2ee API for hours and couldn't stumble
across that. :D

Right.  You setup a connector, e.g., mod_jk, mod_jk2, mod_webapp.  Heck, I
even have a case where I have mod_proxy being used (don't ask why -- archaic
and going away, but it works)!

ref: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/config/connectors.html

It is easier than you think.  Check the docs for your connector of choice.
The best documentation is probably for mod_jk.

If you want a laugh, here is how you do it with mod_rewrite/mod_proxy:

RewriteRule       ^/(.*)$   http://localhost:8080/$1     [P]
ProxyPassReverse  /         http://localhost:8080/

Again, *not* something I recommend.  [FWIW, you could use ProxyPass instead
of a rewrite rule, but there is a lot more going on that isn't shown above.]

If you want the browser to go back to the start.jsp page, you send it there
with request.sendRedirect("/start.jsp"), not a RequestDispatcher.

You're welcome gramps ...  ;-)
