Re: [jetty-users] Proxy apoplexy

I agree that the documentation is outdated, but it states that it applies to Jetty version 7.0.x in the title...

Thanks for that Micheal, the URL below works. Maybe the documentation here should updated as this is where I got the erroneous URL:

Demo application is deployed in Jetty 7 distribution as root context, so you should use URL http://localhost:8080/ to access it.

Thanks very much for your reply, Michael. I downloaded a fresh copy of jetty-distribution-7.3.0.v20110203, unzipped it, and issued a java -jar start.jar command. When requesting http://localhost:8080/test I get a 404 and the request log reads as follows:

0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 -  -  [16/Mar/2011:15:45:02 +0000] "GET /test HTTP/1.1" 404 55 

I tried switching from Chrome to Firefox, and clearing my browser caches, with the same result.

Opera also fails, but the request log is slightly different (note the address): -  -  [16/Mar/2011:15:59:21 +0000] "GET /test HTTP/1.1" 404 55 

If I try and access the test webapp over my LAN at http://[IP address]:8080/test, Firefox on Windows tells me that "The page isn't redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

I haven't disabled or refused cookies.

What can I have messed up in such a 'vanilla install'?

If you are starting a new deployment, it is recommended that you use Jetty 7, because Jetty 6 is not being actively developed anymore.

For proxy setup details, please refer to the test application that is shipped with Jetty, it has a /javadoc context path inside it that is proxied to
