Hi Yves,

thank you for self - replying, this may be useful for the community! I 
did neither know or think this is possible nor try to do it (always used 
the ROOT context in Tomcat for removing the context part and mod_rewrite 
in apache for getting rid of the servlet name).

I don't speak chinese but I'd be happy if this would be translated to 
english and posted to opencms-wiki.org to be shared and polished by a 
larger community.

Kind Regards,

Achim Westermann
