I have no idea why you are trying to do this.  This isn't necessary at all.

Do you understand that your httpd.conf is confused?  You have a URL like:


when it should be:


or even better:


Then you just need to map *.vm in web.xml to your servlet, and your 
JkMount would be:

/webappname/*.vm ajp13

>     JkMount /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.12/webapp2/se/*  ajp13

This is major confusion for mod_jk.

Ditto...this should be something like "/META-INF" not 
"/someDir/META-INF".  the purpose of Alias and DocumentRoot is to get 
you away from using absolute paths in places like Location and JkMount.

Are you serious?  Say the word and I'll stop all this typing.
