Subject Re: mod_proxy_ajp JSESSIONID and Mime Type
Date Mon, 04 Jan 2010 19:10:00 GMT

I'm using Tomcat 6.0.18 with apache 2.2.11.

So this isn't a normal pass through of files from tomcat to apache.  I 
use a URL such as http://mydomain.com/servlet/stylesheet.css to execute 
a servlet that would dynamically create the file "stylesheet.css".  
Since my servlet excepts all types of file types I thought I would just 
leverage apache setting the content-type for me.  This only works 
because apache is smart enough to pick up the extension on the response 
url and append the correct mime type to the content-type header.  The 
problem is that when the JSESSIONID is appended onto the URL it defaults 
the mime type to text/plain regardless of the extension.   This seems 
like a bug but I'm not sure if this a problem with mod_proxy or 
mod_proxy_ajp.  I was looking for a flag to turn off JSESSIONID 
altogether but it doesn't exist, unfortunately.   In the mean time I may 
just try using javax.activation.MimetypesFileTypeMap class in my servlet 
to lookup the mimetypes and set the content-type myself.
