How to exclude a specific path from proxying requests to the backend in mod_cluster

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • What is mod_cluster's equivalent for no-jk or JkUnmount?
  • We used to control what was processed by mod_jk with JkUnmounts or the no-jk option. What is the equivalent of these for mod_cluster? We need to exclude static content from proxying.
  • How can we limit what contexts are proxied by mod_cluster on the httpd side?
  • We are trying to get Apache to serve the static files on an application that is hosted in JBoss load balanced with mod_cluster. We configure the corresponding alias:

    Alias "/myapp/static" "/opt/path/to/static"
    

    The problem is that, with this configuration in Apache httpd, all requests for the application are still being proxied to the JBoss server.

Environment

  • Red Hat JBoss Core Services (JBCS)

  • Red Hat JBoss Web Server (JWS)
  • Apache httpd
