I would drop the RewriteBase, which seems to make things more complicated.

RewriteRule ^/webapps/bar$ /foo [PT]
RewriteRule ^/webapps/bar/(.*)$ /foo/$1 [PT]


JkMount /foo|* worker1

You had no "foo" in your config, so how was it supposed to work?

If you want mod_jk to act after an internal rewrite, you need to use the 
"PT" flag in the RewriteRule.

If it doesn't work, add a RewriteLog and see, what your RewriteRules are 
actually doing.
