Hi guys, I'm using JK connector for Apache. I think I am able to make my Apache web server communicate with Tomcat now... Problem is, whenever I access the domain, I'm still pointed to the directory tree instead of the application.

browser -> apacheWS -> tomcat -> application

WS = Web Server

The above diagram is what I need to happen. Aside from that, I don't want my user to see some weird url like http://www.mydomain.com:8080/myapp, instead I want them to see something like http://www.mydomain.com or http://www.mydomain.com/actions/searchUser.do?userid=12345. Something like that...


I have virtual hosts setup in my server.xml, but I can't post them right now since I'm not in the office and my internet connection is too slow to access our server. I know my apache and tomcat is able to communicate because the log file I defined using the <Valve> element inside the <Host> element is being generated when I invole the URL. That's just the problem though, instead of loading my application, invoking the domain would still show the directory tree and not my application. Any idea guys? Thanks!
