Re: [jetty-users] ProxyServlet https redirect issue

I think I found something that works...

It however breaks the application if I try to access it directly on the jetty server. Is there a less "harsh" (more standard) way to achieve this?

I'm have a problem with redirects when requests go through a ProxyServlet configured on HTTPS, proxying for an HTTP backend. The problem is that when the application sends a redirect, the URL schema is reset from HTTPS to HTTP. Ex:

String redirectURL = request.getContextPath() + "/b.jsp";

Hello World!

The app is running on Jetty and configured with SelectChannelConnector on port 8086. The transparent proxy is configured like this:
Prefix: /

SslSelectChannelConnector for the proxy is configured on port 443.

So, when I go to https://proxy-server/MyApp/a.jsp it is redirected to http://proxy-server/MyApp/b.jsp which breaks. Accessing https://proxy-server/MyApp/b.jsp directly works fine.

I checked the response header: Location: http://proxy-server/MyApp/b.jsp

How can I set up the proxy or the backend so that the HTTPS schema is preserved on redirects?

(I'm using Jetty 7.1.6.v20100715 both on proxy and the backend server.)

Thank you,
