Feature Request - Help needed

Hi All,

This used to be Redirect vs Relocate but it seems what I want to achieve is
currently beyond the ability of these two classes.

I think that Redirect should be the class that supports redirecting it so
I'd like to update it so it actually does what it claims to do... Redirect
:-)

I'm no expert at Java and have only spent a month looking at Jigsaw (while
trying to get on with work) so I would appreciate any help I can get
repairing the Redirect class. I'm looking at the Jigsaw API but I'm a long
way from knowing the best way to go about this.

Would you beleive it... Here's the pici again!

http-server
|--indexers
|  |--MyIndexer
|     |--extensions
|        |--html     <-------------- A redirect/relocate frame
|--space                             on this indexer targets...
   |--servlets
   |  |--MyServlet   <-------------- ...this servlet ie. servlets/MyServlet
   |--virtual
   |  |--virtual.host.com:8001
   |     |--pages       <----------- this directory uses MyIndexer
   |        |--test.html
   |        |--anotherTest.html
   |        |--otherStuff.html

THE GOAL OF THIS FIX IS TO ALLOW A SINGLE INSTANCE OF A SERVLET IN JIGSAW
TO BE USED BY THE ENTIRE SERVER - ALL VIRTUAL HOSTS AND THE ROOT.

Currently, you must create a separate instance of each servlet for every
single virtual host. As you'd expect this has memory, speed and database
connection license costs implications amongst other things.

In our case, we have 35 virtual hosts, most of which need assess to a
couple of databases. That means 30 instances of a servlet, each maintaining
it's own set of database connections.

Ideally all virtual hosts would share the same set of (say) 10 connections,
a third the numberI need to use without the ability to redirect.

Anyone interested?
