Can anybody tell me what is URL Rewriting. Whats the basic purpose behind it. Is it just to hide complex urls's?

Any suitable material on this.

url rewriting is a way of maintaining the state of a client.
if the client doesn't support cookies this is a way of getting around with that.
it rewrites the url and adds a sessionId for that particular session which is then forwarded along.
The downside to URL rewriting is that it involves rewriting every single URL each time a page is generated and anywhere the session can't be created it breaks down
anyway when you need to maintain the state use HttpSession
