Working on application isolation paired with multi instance load balancing and came across what I would consider a bug.
The uriworkermap.properties file included in the mod_jk.conf for Apache on RHEL 7 is seemingly completely ignored by my virtualhost.
In all the documentation I came across, the uriworkermap.properties is where to specify the mount points for each of the workers.
What clued me into it not working as I had anticipated, was that every time I ran ab to test the load balancing between different application paths, the first worker listed in workers.properties->worker.list would always handle the requests.
The solutions I have come across so far :
1. Include the uriworkermap.properties inside of the <virtualhost> config
