  1. PROXY and struts problem (1 messages)

    This is a second time post...i describe the problem more elaborately:

    There is a problem with using proxies in our web application.
    The app works fine without deploying to the production server that uses a proxy.

    What this means is as follows:

    Normal request to login page without proxy...works fine:
    http://servername.com/appName/Login.do

    When request is thru proxy, the initial or first request is made as:
    http://proxyname.com/proxyname/appName/Login.do

    This does give the login page ...but the form tag in the login page is:
    <form action="/Welcome.do" method="POST">
    ....
    </form>

    Now when this form is submitted..the request goes to http://proxyname.com/appName/Welcome.do instead of http://proxyname.com/proxyname/appName/Welcome.do

    Do u see the problem in this now?...so what shud i do either in the form element
    or the action mapping that would detect this proxy URL and send the request to
    http://proxyname.com/proxyname.appName/Welcome.do??

    thanks a lot!

    Just in case you stopped looking at the first thread:

    In your JSP why don't you try to use the <html:base /> tag? That way the form will look for /Welcome.do in the same folder that is currently in the URI.

    html:base documentation: http://struts.apache.org/userGuide/struts-html.html#base

    Give it a try, tell me how it goes.
