Newb Needs URL Rewrite Help

Hello all. On my dev machine, I have installed Lucee Express 4.5.1.020
final w/ Apache Tomcat/8.0.15 on Windows 7. I cannot get any url rewrites
to work. I have tried Tuckey’s urlrewrite filter and Tomcat’s rewrite valve
but my lack of Tomcat experience is hindering my efforts.

If possible, could someone reply with “newb” instructions on how to setup
either of the above for Lucee Express? Other solutions are welcome.

The rewrites for the site aren’t complex. I need to convert:

http://local.abc.com:8888/category.cfm?cat=the-sweet-life
-to-
http://local.abc.com:8888/category/the-sweet-life

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, CV

If you plan to use IIS you can do that in IIS without rolling url rewrite
on tomcat. Same all over apache use.

With apache you will use .htaccess rules and under IIS :

http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite

That would be far easier than toying with tomcat.

MB, yes I realize that, I’ll be using Apache when the site is live.

That said, my goal is to not install additional software. I like the idea
of simply copying a properly configured folder and having it simply just
run on my work PC, home PC, laptop, etc.

That is why I am asking for help.
