I have not used apache aliases. My solution is, you may use a global config file
like a config.class or set an application-wide constant and use it
throughout your code. And change the paths accordingly.


<img src="[mycrappypathtotheimage]/goodImageIsntIt.tiff" alt="..." ... />

will be like

<img src="<%=Config.BaseImagePath%>/goodImageIsntIt.tiff" alt="..." ... />

It means search&replace of all the image paths in your project but a
bulk search and replace will do it quickly imho.
