Subject Ugh. IIS + Tomcat + multiple virtual hosts
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2005 16:45:51 GMT
I have a number of applications running under Tomcat root contexts, on 
various different servers/ports.  Under Apache, I can use the 

JkMount /* workername

directive under a virtual directory to allow me to do virtual hosting, under 
Apache, which allows me to specify that a particular hostname be handled by 
a particular worker, on a particular host and port.  Quite clean, I like it.

However, I find myself with the need to use IIS to front end the sites now, 
and the redirector DLL doesn't seem to account for this type of 

What this comes down to is having multiple instances of the redirector that 
refer to different files.  Way back when, someone 
mentioned an enhancement that was planned whereby the redirector DLL would 
check for a file called <dllname>.properties somewhere, and if present, use 
it, otherwise, check the registry for the location of the config file.

I blindly tried that, and it doesn't seem to work.

Did this enhancement ever happen?  Is there some secret incantation I have 
to do to make it work?

Is there a way to do what I'm trying to accomplish?  I've already suggested 
that we go with Apache instead and proxy any sites that require IIS, but I'm 
guessing that won't be an option.
