small configuration problem here. i have a tomcat server with apps deployed like this

because of other reasons, i have to use mod_jk to proxy these applications out to the following urls

ive been searching online for ideas how to configure this but it looks like i have to map the individual applications to their own subdomain in tomcat and then proxy to those subdomains. is that correct or can i do this some other way.

What are you using to host this? I know Ubuntu has tools to support multiple tomcats running at one time (I have 9 on one server at this point). – MaddHacker May 14 '12 at 18:04
its hosted on a debian server. – scphantm May 15 '12 at 21:01

in case anyone cares, i ended up having to configure all the applications into their own vhosts and then mapping them thru the proxy. there probably is a better way to do it, but i was under the gun and that was the only configuration i had that worked.

+1 for self empowerment! BTW, that is the way I would've done it myself. Based on what you stated, vhosts going to be cleaner and easier to manage. – KM. May 16 '12 at 0:36
