Description : Java Web Filter J2EE compliant based on mod_rewrite which allows to rewrite URLs
Based on the popular and very useful mod_rewrite for Apache,
UrlRewriteFilter is a Java Web Filter for any J2EE compliant web
application server (such as Resin, Orion or Tomcat), which allows
you to rewrite URLs before they get to your code. It is a very
powerful tool just like Apache's mod_rewrite.
The main things UrlRewriteFilter is used for are:
- URL tidyness and/or URL abstraction.
- Browser detection.
- Date based rewriting.
- Moved content.
- Tiny/friendly URLs.
- A Servlet mapping engine (see Method Invocation).
UrlRewriteFilter uses an XML file, called urlrewrite.xml (it goes
into the WEB-INF directory), for configuration. Most parameters can
be Perl5 style regular expressions or wildcard expressions.
