If you're looking for URL rewriting in Java, you need go no further than
http://tuckey.org/urlrewrite/

If you're trying to rewrite URLs in a web server sitting in front of
Tomcat, you'll need to look at the documentation for that web server to
see what options are available. Apache httpd has mod_rewrite, and I have
no idea what lighttpd supports.

I'm not sure you really need rewriting, since you could just map
/ws/type/ to the same servlet that handles requests to /
