About the URL rewriting solutions

Posted on August 06 2003 by Yoichi Takayama in reponse to A feature or a bug; SCORM and cross domain scripting

EZProxy and Libproxy are both based on Apache and use the URL rewriting technique to make multile URLs (servers/domains) to appear to be coming from just one domain. The technique is called reverse-proxy. EZProxy is a commercial proudct and Libproxy is well proven for this "reverse-proxy"ing. Although we have not used either software for SCORM packages, they may solve the cross domain scripting issue since the browser would think that both SCORM API and the package are coming from the same domain. The best thing about this solution is that principally nothing needs to be changed in any of the systems except that you need to install and configure the reverse-proxy server on top of them. I think that the idea is similar to Fetcher server in that the trick is how to make both SCORM API and the packages appear to be coming from the same domain.

Did anyone try this before?
