JBOSS / Apache Web Server Question

I'm using Apache to virtual host for my JBoss Application Server.  Here is part of the Apache config:


<VirtualHost *>
    ServerName myserver.com
    ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/myapp/
    ProxyPassReverse /  http://localhost:8080/myapp/
</VirtualHost>


Now, when I goto myserver.com it does indeed serve up the correct pages.  The problem is, everytime I click on a link it invalidates the session so I have a new session ID every time I click a link.  That is not good considering I use the session ID.

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

Why aren't you using mod_jk?
This will make Apache communicate with JBoss's embedded Tomcat using the AJP13 connector which is must faster, and it will pass all parameters to Tomcat as well.

This sounds like a context issue.  To check you can set your browser to display your cookies before accepting them.  Check this as the cookie probably is setting the context to /myapp so when you make the request to /something else its getting lost.  If you don't like or can't use zvilka's suggestion you can try to chane the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse to /myapp/.

Hi Andy,

Was that helpful?
The problem you described is relevant to mod_rewrite. It seems this is what you are using. mod_jk2 totally solved this issue.
