Questions like this tend to be hiding several levels of assumptions  
and/or complexity that's not revealed by the question itself,  
however ...

I *think* what you're asking is for the ProxyPass directive, not  
mod_rewrite at all.

ProxyPass /inventoryappl
ProxyPassReverse /inventoryappl

This will "hide" the back-end URL, while serving content from it.

mod_rewrite doesn't need to be involved in this process at all.

As for the other response that mentioned a big security hole and  
spoofing DNS, I'm not at all sure what he was talking about, but you  
don't need to spoof DNS, and there's no security implication whatever  
in using this technique.
