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:


And this is the apache server:


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


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.
