Full disclosure: Since this seems to be more of a configuration issue, I deleted this from Stack (where it wasn't getting any response) and reposted here.
The problem is how to change the requestContextPath served up by Glassfish behind mod_proxy_ajp. The site/app runs fine if connecting directly to Glassfish port 8080 which is ultimately not what I want to do.
So I need help with configuration for my servers and jsf deployment. I can see the issue but don't know how to resolve it. It has to do with the requestContextPath.
Simply put, Apache directs to
http://mysite.com/welcome.xhtmlwhich is correct and what I want, but the page is minus the images and styles.
The issue is Glassfish itself is still pointing to
http://mysite.com/myapp/*. So all links it serves in the app/site still refer via the requestContextPath. That is the
When I look in the page source, images which are referred to with relative links still point to the requestContextPath (that is, /myapp/). This is fixable but a real pain.
However with page links I can't set the relative path.
If I hover over the contact page link I see
http://mysite.com/myapp/contact.xhtml, and if I click it, I get 404. You can see the
/myapp/context path in the page source as well.
If I type in the URL
http://mysite.com/contact.xhtmlI get the page minus its referred links (requestContextPath).

I have tried going in to Glassfish and setting the web app as the default web app. I have changed the
/ in glassfish-web.xml (and checked to make sure it was the same in the EAR file).
How can I get Glassfish to not include the
/myapp/ context in the URLs? This has to be easy if you know how, but I don't know how, can someone help out here? Thanks.
