Ah. I think the list will clip-out attachments. I'm not sure of the
rules, but copy/paste pretty much always works.

That's because you said "anything that starts with "/cocoon/" should go
to Tomcat. If you don't want Tomcat to serve those files, then don't use
that kind of JkMount directive.

Apache httpd can only test based upon URI... it has no idea if a
resource will be static or dynamic. You have to map your URIs appropriately.

It's not strange at all: you told Tomcat to handle everything (for
example) for "/cocoon/*". That's /everything/, regardless of it's
static-ness. If you know that cocoon is required for 25 different URIs,
then simply list them all. Or, if you know that cocoon only serves
content for URIs more like this:


...then only map that portion of the URI space into Tomcat.

Apache httpd is doing /exactly/ what you've asked it to do. You just
need to configure it to do what you want it to do.
