Yes..filters can be used to make wrappers.This is because you might want to compress the response you are getting from a servlet and you can create your own custom response object and pass it as a parameter to the chain.doFilter(req,res) method.

For details of this please refer to HFSJ book.It has been explained beautifully there.Though you do not need to know it in detail.

Thanks....<br />babun

This is phrasing it a bit strangely- filters are not used to create wrappers or vice versa. In a filter you'd create a wrapper if necessary (it's not required).
