Pretty URLs in Tapestry

It looks like Tapestry 3.1 will have pretty URLs - which will make it much easier to use CMA. Identity Theft 911 has recently converted their 300+ page website from JSP to Tapestry. If you click through the site, you'll notice that the URLs what you'd expect to see, rather than Tapestry's ugly URLs. The best part is they explain how they did it, and Howard loves it:

Wow! You've prototyped Tapestry 3.1 for me :-) Only had a chance to look at the home page (I'm at a client) but it does look sweet.

If you want a general purpose J2EE url rewrite component, check out URL Rewrite, http://urlrewrite.dev.java.net/. It's just a filter with an xml rules file but it's very versitile and will allow you to rewrite URLs in virtually anyway you can think of. And since it is a filter, you can put it right on top of and existing Struts or Spring or Webwork app. I am using it right now for a client for pretty much the same reasons they chose to and it's working out great.

I've actually used URL Rewrite on a recent project - good stuff!

Native Tapestry URLs are very pretty, you just have to share its aesthetic. But yes, shorter and more human readable will come.

I care less about human readable and more about search engine friendly/readable. I'm glad to see this coming down the line.

OT: I actually market a service that is far more affordable and comprehensive than Identity Theft 911, the Kroll Identity Theft Shield. Kroll is a 30 year old risk management company. As just one example of the credibility of the company, they were engaged by the federal govenrment to do the forensic accounting of Enron and are still running the company right now. For $12.95 a month the primarymember and the member's spouse are covered. The price is just unbeatable.

Charles, I disagree with you. I had the Identity Theft Shield for a couple of months...it is sold by Pre-paid Legal Services and costs about $160 per year plus $10 sign up fee and I think it's one of the most expensive around. I did look at Identity Theft 911's program and it was a better product and cost only $49 for a year. But the key indicator of quality was the fact the Identity Theft 911 had tons of information about identity theft on their site and most of the others did not, including Pre-paid/Kroll. Information is your best defense against this crime.
