Sounds like a use case for mod_proxy.

ProxyPass               /url1/    http://server1:8081/VS.web/
ProxyPassReverse        /url1/   http://server1:8081/VS.web/

ProxyPass               /url2/ http://server2:88/VS.web/
ProxyPassReverse        /url2/ http://server2:88/VS.web/

This will pass the  /url1/*  URLS to server1 port 8081  and URLS beigging with /url2/ to server2
port 88

Each HTTP connection would go to the apache server and then there be forwarded (proxyed) to
the server1 or server2.
