Automatically handling deployment failures with mod_proxy

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We use mod_proxy to balance load across several JBoss/Tomcat instances. If one instance has a deployment failure, mod_proxy continues to route requests to it, resulting 404s since the application is not successfully deployed. Is there anyway to get mod_proxy to recognize automatically that traffic should be sent to other instances instead of the 404/failed deployment instance?
