APEX 4.2.1
RHEL 6.4
GlassFish 3.1.2
Apache 2..x
With Apache as my proxy server and Glassfish as my web server, the Oracle APEX listener rejects the ProxyPass URL from Apache, http://myserver/apex/f?p=101. From the APEX Listener I get the error

400 - Bad Request error - the request path contains illegal characters.

Is there a way to change the f?p=101 to another string, like main_app.html. By the way, the page index.html comes up fine and brings me to the APEX main login page instead. I have to assume that the ? is causing an issue. I tried rewrite rules but I am not familiar with that facet of Apache to know if I am using it correctly.

Any suggestions?
