Url Redirect Not working

I have application name as "appname"  and i want to redirect internally to a particular action using name space like
/test/index.action and /test1/login.action  

i am not able to mask the context name to ProxyPass

Below conf file describes you my server configuration

        ServerName ie.abc.com

        ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/Ie-error.log
        # Log everything in common format, except events tagged with dontlog - see end of httpd.conf for details
        CustomLog /var/log/httpd/Ie-access.log common env=!dontlog

        # Redirect to proper start page.
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteRule  ^/$ index.action [R=301,L]

        ProxyRequests Off
        ProxyPreserveHost On

        <Proxy *>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all

        # ProxyPass to the jboss instance
        ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/appname/
        ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/appname/

        <Location />
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

where appname is context root for both "test" and "test1" are name spaces.

Well, you need to put redirection command in .htaccess file.

For example:

Point an entire site to a different URL, such as domain.net redirected to domain.com:

# This allows you to redirect your entire website to any other domain
Redirect 301 / http://example.com/

Redirect index.html to a specific subfolder:

# This allows you to redirect index.html to a specific subfolder
Redirect /index.html http://example.com/newdirectory/

Redirect an old file to a new file path:

# Redirect old file path to new file path
Redirect /olddirectory/oldfile.html http://example.com/newdirectory/newfile.html

Redirect to a specific index page:

# Provide Specific Index Page (Set the default handler)
DirectoryIndex index.html
