Tomcat Load balancing using mod_rewrite

Hello,

I want to do a simple load balancing of two tomcat servers (5.5.17) using apache web server (2.2.3) and mod_rewrite.

These are my tomcat servers:

http://server1:8080/myapp
http://server2:8080/myapp

And this is the apache server:

http://mainserver:80

I want to access my web application through the apache server:

http://mainserver/myapp

The load balancer should provide:
1. session affinity
2. if I have a request like http://mainserver/myapp?action=getReport&id=100&appserver=server1
the balancer should ignore the cookie JSESSIONID and redirect the request to http://server1:8080/myapp.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance.
