lighttpd + tomcat + a custom rewrite rule

Hello, I just setup lighttpd as a web server, tomcat as an application server in which there is meshcms running.
Tomcat is setup to run on localhost port 8080 and is proxied using lighttpd like this:

$HTTP["host"] == "" {
    server.document-root = "/srv/www"
    server.errorlog = "/var/log/lighttpd/tomcat_error.log"
    accesslog.filename = "/var/log/lighttpd/tomcat_access.log"
    server.max-keep-alive-requests = 20
    server.tag = "lighttpd"
    proxy.server = ( "" =>
  		       ( (
		           "host" => "",
		           "port" => 8080
Now, when I wanna access the meshcms app, I need to call it this way:

http://localhost/meshcms or

Is it possible in lighttpd to create a rule which will allow me to use the url from this to ?

In tomcat wouldn't be very easy as it's deployed as a war, but I suppose in lighttpd using some kind of a rewrite rule could be possible. I'm not good at all at rewrite rules, so please anyone if you got some ideas let me know.

Thank you.
