             Summary: Implement Virtualhost centric REST interface
                 Key: QPID-7563
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Java Broker
    Affects Versions: qpid-java-6.2
            Reporter: Keith Wall

For use-cases where the Broker to hosts a shared service where different 
applications are assigned to be different virtual hosts the broker should offer 
the ability to manage these virtualhosts independently.  It should behave as if 
it were a chrooted prison.

AMQP Management already offers this ability.  The HTTP management interface 
should change to offer the same thing.

The REST API of a virtualhost will service the only virtualhost's subtree.  The 
formation of the service urls will reflect this structure.  {{/virtualhost}} 
will be analogous to {{//broker}} and will service the virtualhost root.  
{{/queue/}} will serve all the queues defined on the virtualhost, 
{{/queue/<queuename>}} will serve only the names queue.

To offer the virtualhost service, the HTTPPort will be changed to support 
VirtualHostAliases.  As with an AMQPPort, with a HostNameAlias, a HTTP port 
will be capable of presenting an interface for any virtualhost whose name 
matches the hostname of the incoming request.  A new alias type will support a 
one to one mapping between port and virtualhost interface.

The scope of the work will be the REST API only.   Authentication will be 
performed by the preemptive authenticator - SASL won't be support yet.  Nor 
will offer services such as query, reports, metadata etc.
