This chapter discusses about the supported URLs.
Rewriter supports rewriting of all standard URLs as specified by RFC-1738. These URLs are supported whether the protocol is HTTP or HTTPS and regardless of the capitalization of the protocol. For example, hTtP, HTtp, and httP are all valid. Some sample standard URLs are listed below:
http://www.my.sesta.com http://www.example.org:8000/imaginary/test http://www.example.edu/org/admin/people#andy http://info.example.org/AboutUs/Index/Phonebook?dobbins http://www.example.org/RDB/EMP?*%20where%20name%%3Dobbins http://info.example.org/AboutUs/Phonebook http://user:firstname.lastname@example.org
Rewriter supports rewriting of some basic non-standard URLs. The information to convert non-standard URLs to a standard format is taken from the base URL of the page where the URL appears and can include the protocol, host name, and path. The back slash (dd is supported only when it is part of a relative URL and not part of an absolute URL. For example, http://sesta.com\\index.html is rewritten, but http:\\\\sesta.com is not.
In addition, URLs with a single slash (/) after the protocol or scheme such as http:/sesta.com are not rewritten.
