This document is not a comprehensive guide to URL rewriting or proxies. It is a simple how-to guide for getting started with URL simplification quickly.

The standard LiveServer URL is complex, as shown in the following example:


Each component of the URL maps to a specific input to create LiveServer delivery.

Common components include protocol, server name (or IP address), port, Tomcat context, servlet, weblet, session ID, project, XSL stylesheet, and content.
