How do I configure Apache Traffic Server for the following conditions:

When a request is received, resolve it as a static file from disk. If the file cannot be found, hit another webserver (Tomcat) and return its response. The secondary webserver is responsible for writing these static files.

Just use a custom 404 handler. –  David Schwartz Oct 8 '12 at 8:33
Thanks. I will look up the documentation. I come from the world of Tomcat and thus not very sure on how to achieve the same. –  sangupta Oct 8 '12 at 8:40
The Traffic Server is a proxy. It would cache files from an upstream webserver, but it could not serve static files from disk. –  Thomas Berger Oct 12 '12 at 19:43
