Subject Re: uri_map using regex [WAS: mod_jk, mod_jk2 URI spaces]
Date Sat, 10 Aug 2002 00:03:58 GMT
Doesn't mod_rewrite do what you want here? In combination with
mod_proxy, it can rewrite URL to URL as well, so you can get the
resulting URL back in mod_jk and then just use normal mappings. Or maybe
I'm on a totally wrong track here...

As for IIS, dunno, don't care ;-)
