This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi all, Is there a way for a javax.servlet.Filter to obtain the set of HTTP headers that the response being handled is going to send out? I know I can get the headers my filtered servlet's are explicitly setting by handing out a wrapper object instead of the actual HttpServletResponse, but I'm interested in getting access also to those HTTP headers set by the container (for example, the "Server" header).
Originally posted by Frank Carver: I know it's not what you asked, but whenever I've needed this I have done it using a simple forwarding/logging proxy. I can't recall the name of the one I last used, but there are plenty about.
Yeah. That's what we've tried to do (using a sniffer) but it's a lot of work to set up such a thing and the last time we asked the hosting provider to set up the sniffer for a test, the sniffer crashed under the traffic (they put it into a "less than optimal" place in the network) which made me think about this question (again). Do you have any suggestions to look at? Our primary concern is robustness (it's a money-making application...)
