I have an apache webserver that needs to redirect requests coming to it to a jboss server running on a different machine. The requests passin in a "searchType" request param. THe issue I am having is with redirecting the request to the jboss server, whule trying to capture the request parameter dynamically.
To clarify :

The following works:
RewriteRule /my/search http://jboss-server:8080/my/search?searchType=SEARCH_VALUE

But the following does not work
RewriteRule /my/search http://jboss-server:8080/my/search?searchType=$1

I would like to know how to capture that value dynamically.
Not sure if this is right forum. If not, sorry... But please please help! Been stuck for more than 4 hours on this.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
