I need to simulate several urls.

1. categories
a. subCategoryA
b. subCategoryB

2. products
a. productTypA
- product1
- product2
b. productTypB
- product 3

I try to simulate a url like this:
categories/subCategoryA/productTypB/product 3

I use this Director::Rule to handle my requests:

Director::addRules(100, array(
'categories//$subCategory!/$productTyp' => 'Hauptkategorie_Controller'

and this handler (read the comments):

public static $url_handlers = array(
'' => 'index',
//works ->URL:http://website.xx/categories

'$subCategory' => 'subCategory',
//works ->URL:http://website.xx/categories/subCategory

'$subCategory/$productTyp' => 'test'
// does not work. I'm getting a 404 ->URL:http://website.xx/categories/subCategory/productTyp

I think calling the url http://website.xx/categories/subCategory/productTyp does not match the rule, but I don't understand why.

Any help appreciated

Thanks in advance

This is working ....

Caution! Don't forget the '!'

in my _config
Director::addRules(100, array(
'cateories//$subcategories/$producttyp/$product' => 'Hauptkategorie_Controller'

in my handler:
public static $url_handlers = array(
'$subcategories/$producttyp/$product!' => 'test4',
'$subcategories/$producttyp!' => 'test3',
'$subcategories!' => 'test2',
'' => 'test1'

cheers ;)
