This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
At my company we are using WebSphere Application Server 6.0 and WebSphere Commerce Server 6.0. In our production environment we use a clustered environment where a few different app servers are running at a time to service client requests. We want to implement what are called "vanity URLs" so that companies/organizations who register with our site can be directed to their their own custom landing page. The landing page will simply have different text displayed on the screen depending on the actual logged in user.
Can someone who has work experience with implementing vanity URLs in a clustered WAS environment provide good strategies for vanity URL implementation?
Vanity URLs are of the form:
So that the pathname that follows the generic URL is company-specific.
Some have said it is best to implement vanity URLs at the web layer but I'm not even sure the best way to do this. If anyone has a good idea I'm all ears!
Since I didn't know which topic my scenario falls under I just decided to post in the best category I could.
