Confusion is par for the course with responses from Martin.

Since mod_jk (I assume you're using mod_jk) maps URIs to Tomcat, your
mapping will occur before Apache httpd consults the filesystem to see if
there's anything like an .htaccess file in there.

I think you'll have to do this at the top-level of your virtual host
within httpd.conf (or wherever you define your virtual/non-virtual
host). You might not be able to do it in an .htaccess file at all.

Are you able to modify your own Apache configuration? If not, you may
have to ask your system administrator to do it for you.
