Rewrite URL with mod rewrite - possible?

Hi

 

Before our apex site goes live on the Internet I want to mask the URL and display a friendly URL, to improve the security and usability and seo benefits of having a friendly url

 

So for

 

http://www.mydomain.com/apex/f?p=103:2

 

it would be

 

http://www.mydomain.com/sports/shirts

 

and

 

http://www.mydomain.com/apex/f?p=103:10:14249984563965::NO:::

 

would be

 

http://www.mydomain.com/special-offers

 

How can this be achieved in APEX?  The site sits in a JAVA container and is served by Tomcat which is behind a MS proxy / firewall. 

 

Will I need to install a web server to enable URL rewriting, and if so how would I write the rules to rewrite the URLs?
