yes that sounds reasonable. Uhm. Wait, if I have another something redirected from /rsp well not likely, but what about the /databases ? Yes doing the rewrite this way would work as long as:
1) You don’t have another redirection with the same name to another “backend” which collides with those used by mtdaap.
2) the thing is what to do with suffixes like /xml-rpc?method=stats xml-rpc requests might be for different app not the daap. This is the most probable clash point. (I’m not sure about this part so correct me please if I’m wrong)
Adding the prefix would also have the advantage of not caring much about the changes in the java code. And probably the mtdaap prefix is also pretty much unique. Well but the question is, will it work for the applet ? (well I’ll try and report – it won’t see below the Request.java constructs the whole URL)
