Right.  Another case that I'm exploring...crawling an internal site and wanting a load balanced
url.  So you would crawl something like this:

and then want to change it to:

Is that better for the url mapper?

Thanks!  It's far better to implement this than to try and hack it.  A general way of removing
session information with regular expressions is probably not going to cut it either, so for
now it's got to be in Java.

The "!ut" and then a bunch of session information is from Web Sphere Portal.  Some information
about it here:!ut%22+session+variables+websphere#v=onepage&q=%22!ut%22%20session%20variables%20websphere&f=false

I'll look at making a change to the web crawler to suppor this like the BV and ASP.NET<http://ASP.NET>

There are provisions in the URL canonicallization part of the world for removal of session
information from the URL.  It only knows about some kinds of widely used sessions; java app
server sessions, for example, Broadvision sessions, etc.  If you can convince me that your
session information is (a) uniquely identifiable, and (b) commonly used, the proper approach
is to incorporate session removal in this framework.  Please let me know.

I've got a really long url with a bunch of unnecessary session query string parameters.  I've
been trying unsuccessfully to map it to the same url without the session.

an example of the url below.  I thought I could do this:

url map regular expression:


replacement configuration:


So the go would be that the url be:

But the url gets rejected.
