there are several methods.
if you setup OpenCms in the ROOT-webapp, you simplify the rewriting task

   RewriteEngine on
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/resources/.*$
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/export/.*$
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/opencms/.*$
   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/setup/.*$
   RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ /opencms/$1

   RewriteRule ^/(.*)$ http://domain:8081/$1 [P]
   ProxyPassReverse / http://domain:8081/

make sure you use the same domain-name in the server.xml:
	<Host name="domain" debug="0" appBase="webapps" ...

method with JK-mount
see Sebastian Himberger's howto: 

and finally i'm checking the method of rewriting uris inside the 
webapp-container-application (e.g. tomcat) by a filter class: tuckey's 
UrlRewriteFilter. but at the moment there are some strange behaviours, see
