Special redirection

Hi everyone,


I'm running a JEE6 application on JBoss AS6, i need to do some URL redirection in such way if a user type : www.mydomaine.com/username, he will be redirected to the profile of the user with the given "username",

the problem is that when you type the username after the domaine name, JBoss AS is thinking about it as an application context and it gives me a 404 resource not found...

is there any solution in JEE6 to accomplish this need ?

thanks in advance


regards

I can take any suggestions even if it's not in the JEE6

Sounds like you need to run your web app as the ROOT web app.

Alternatively, if there's an Apache in front of JBoss, this is something that the mod_rewrite module is perfect for.
