We're currently writing a webapp using Spring MVC which is going to run on Tomcat 6 and Apache httpd. Given that Spring is providing us with HTTP RequestMapping functionality made me think using Apache's mod_rewrite module is unnecessary. Are there any good reasons (architectural/security reasons etc) for keeping rewrite functionality in Apache? Note, that our rewrite requirements so far are quite basic. I'm not sure and don't think Spring caters for the more complex forms of rewrite. It would be interesting to get other peoples opinion on this.
