Install the URL Rewriter Enterprise Add-on
The URL Rewriter Enterprise Add-on can be added to your implementation project using the Essentials setup application.
- Hippo 12 based project with the Essentials setup application
- Access to the Bloomreach Experience Manager Maven repository
- In Essentials' initial Project setup screen, check the Enterprise features checkbox in order to see the URL Rewriter feature.
- In Essentials' feature library, add URL Rewriter to your project.
- Rebuild and restart your project (Complete installation of URL Rewriter requires two rebuild-and-restart cycles).
Above steps have the following conceptual effect on your implementation project:
- If the project is not already an Enterprise project, it gets converted into one.
- The necessary library dependencies are added to the cms and site modules. At bootstrap, they will ensure that the add-on is successfully installed, using default configuration.
- The site module's web.xml descriptor is modified in order to apply the URL rewriting rules when processing incoming requests.
- A piece of Spring configuration is added to the site module to make sure that updates to the rules or the global configuration become effective.
