Subject Re: Tomcat mod_proxy_ajp and jk exceptions
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 08:33:00 GMT
As a first approximation this is true. But ProxyPassReverse does not 
rewrite the body of responses. So if there is a wrong URL in the body, 
then this will not be fixed by ProxyPassReverse. It is mostly (or only?) 
for fixing the Location header in http redirects.

Regards,

Rainer
