I am interested in using a Jigsaw proxy server (1.0 alpha 5) to map some
incoming requests  to GETs on resources local to the proxy server. So if
http://tatung:9999 is the proxy, I might want to map the request
http://<alias_urlpath>,  to http://tatung:9999/<real_urlpath>. 

By attaching an ingoingFilter to the root ProxyDirectory and using
setURLPath, I was able to modify the incoming request to a local
resource but not with quite the desired results. What I end up GETting
is http://localhost:9999/<real_url>, not http://tatung:9999/<real_url>
(I see no evidence that my overloaded GET method on <real_url> is being

Would appreciate any pointers on whether the filter-on-ProxyDirectory 
is the right way to go, and if so some further detail.
