Subject mod_webapp WebAppAlias directive
Date Sat, 29 Dec 2001 02:13:13 GMT
I was looking for a way to map a single servlet context on different 
URIs (so as to be able to use relative URLs in the HTML outputs - for 
internationalization and customization purposes).

I finally made a patch on mod_webapp (Apache-1.3) that adds the 
directive WebAppAlias (Usage: WebAppAlias <uri-dest> <uri-alias>).

My httpd.conf now looks like:

     [.../...]
     WebAppConnection warpConnection warp localhost:8008
     WebAppDeploy . warpConnection /servlet/
     WebAppAlias /servlet/ /neostyle/us/servlet/
     WebAppAlias /servlet/ /oldstyle/fr/servlet/
     [.../...]


The request [http://<MYSERVER>/oldstyle/fr/servlet/HelloWorld] is then 
totally equivalent to [http://<MYSERVER>/servlet/HelloWorld], since I 
replace [/oldstyle/fr/servlet/] by [/servlet/] in wam_match method.


In case it is usefull to s.o., here is the patch I made:
