Issue Type: Feature Request Feature Request
Affects Versions: MOD_CLUSTER_1_0_10_GA_CP02
Assignee: Jean-Frederic Clere
Created: 02/Jul/12 11:24 AM

The CONFIG message from JBoss to apache is always formatted like the following and still uses the resolved ip address instead of the bound to host name:

Port=8009, Host=, Type=ajp, StickySessionForce=No, Maxattempts=1

Even if the Connector is defined like:

<Connector port="8009" address= "localhost" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8443" />

This can cause issues if apache needs to proxy to JBoss through the host name and not the ip. This could be corrected by using InetAdress.toString() in org.jboss.modcluster.Utils and parsing the hostname out of this result if provided, for example:

public static String getAddress(Connector connector)
Object address = IntrospectionUtils.getProperty(connector.getProtocolHandler(), "address");

if (address == null) return "";

if (address instanceof InetAddress)

{ String addressString = ((InetAddress) address).toString(); int index = addressString.indexOf("/"); return (index > 0) ? addressString.substring(0, index) : addressString.substring(1); }


{ return (String) address; }
