Virtual Host Configuration in JBoss

Virtual Host Configuration in JBoss 6.1.0 EAP / Jboss7 COMMUNITY EDITION

"Virtual Hosts" is a method to serve requests for multiple host names for example you access your website similar to real host names like http://trvajjala.in 
If you want set virtual host to your application you need to follow below instructions.

Configure Virtual Hosts in standalone.xml

Open standalone.xml under ${JBOSS}/standalone/configuration folder and configure below virtual hosts configurations in one of subsystems.
If you have multiple applications in the same server you can use separate virtual host entry.
<subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:web:1.4" default-virtual-server="default-host" native="false">
            <connector name="http" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="http" socket-binding="http"/>
            <connector name="ajp" protocol="AJP/1.3" scheme="ajp" socket-binding="ajp" enabled="true"/>
            <virtual-server name="default-host" enable-welcome-root="true">
                <alias name="localhost"/>
                <alias name="example.com"/>
            <virtual-server name="VirtualServer-One" default-web-module="webModuleOne">
                <alias name="localhost"/>
                <alias name="one.trvajjala.com"/>
            <virtual-server name="VirtualServer-Two" default-web-module="webModuleTwo">
                <alias name="localhost"/>
                <alias name="two.trvajjala.com"/>

Change the http port to 80 from 8080 so that you need not required specifying port as well.
This needs to change under socket-binding-group section.
<socket-binding-group name="standard-sockets" default-interface="public" port-offset="${jboss.socket.binding.port-offset:0}">
        <socket-binding name="http" port="80"/>

If this you want to make it available in LAN change mention IP address under interfaces section.
        <interface name="management">
            <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.management:}"/>
        <interface name="public">
            <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address:}"/>
        <interface name="unsecure">
            <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.unsecure:}"/>

Specify the same in jboss-web.xml specific to application

Next step is to create jboss-web.xml under WEB-INF folder of your web module.
And mention below content. <context-root> must be / and <virtual-host> value should match with standalone.xml virtual-server name which we mentioned in the first section.
           <context-root>/ </context-root>

 MENTION same thing in the host file.

Open your host files and add entry as shown below.
               # IP-ADDRESS   ALIAS-NAME   one.trvajjala.in   two.trvajjala.in

Now you can access your application using http://one.trvajjala.in    which will render content from
