When to use internal rewrites over dispatcher or webserver rewrites?


Level 4

As I looked through the configMgr Status menus I noticed the Sling Rewriter status.  This lead me to:


This has some modules setup for mobile, mobiledebug and link checker.  Can someone give me some examples of creating a module for my app implementation to use this internal rewriter?  It would be nice to include necessary or discrete rewrite rules in my content package or configurable within the workbench rather than bugging for access to the webserver config files.

Is there some write-up on when its better to use the internal rewriter than the external(ized-by-dispatcher) rewriter module?

Is this the maps.publish rewrite rules?  Or just a representation for the linkchecker rewriter module?

Any takers on this?  Details, details to rewriter configurations and usages within AEM versus in the httpd.conf.
