Hello,

I have two URLs. One is .com the other is .org. I would like to forward .com to the .org URL. I am using tomcat without apache in front of it. So, I believe I need to do this using the urlrewrite.xml file. However, it isn't working. Can someone please help? I am at a loss and we need this done ASAP.

Thanks!!

Update:

Use a web server like apache or IIS in front of tomcat if you need to do a lot of URL redirection. It's much easier..

As an FYI, the rule that you added wasn't correct. The hostname is usually a condition, even w/ Apache style redirects. For example, you may have tried the format of the rule as discussed here (with representation of how it correlates to a similar apache style rule.

Thanks! I guess that makes sense as to why it wasn't working..

We ended up deciding to use IIS in front of tomcat. After we had that going setting up redirects wasn't too complicated.
