We have a 3rd party web service which we interact with via Soap. In this regard we query the 3rd party for resources, construct a home page and all links generated on this index page are referencing ID's of a 3rd party web service.
site.com/get.php?id=34bv43b34b3b34be //corresponds to "Service 1" site.com/get.php?id=3443g43gg43g5h56 //corresponds to "Service 2" and so on...
Being that these are referencing a resource on a 3rd party, how can I use mod_rewrite or something similar to construct nice URLs.
Something such as:
site.com/get/Service_1 //corresponds to site.com/get.php?id=34bv43b34b3b34be
Would we have to index these services and system ID's on our own site potentially in a database or something to achieve this?
Basically, what I want to know is can I do this without storing any additional data on our site? If not, I understand that I could have a cron job setup to periodically poll the 3rd party web service for changes and have a local database with services and system IDs but we would really like a solution that doesn't involve this.
Can provide more details of our system configuration if needed.
