Anyone had luck in testing Jason Falkner's CompressionFilter?

Test code to test Jason Falkner's GZipFilter ("Servlets and JavaServer pages; the J2EE Web Tier", by Jayson Falkner) is found under URL:

I am using Jason Falkner's filter.
However, byte size returned by code in
is the same for both compressed and uncompressed mode.

I can see compression of a static page (jsp, html etc.) by typing:
localhost:8080/myDomain/myHtml.htm, or localhost:8080/myDomain/myJsp.jsp.
However, when I try using a servlet e.g. as: localhost:8080/myDomain/MyServlet
I see the same size of byte and do not see any compression. MyServlet is a very seimple servlet which spits out content in browser like "Hello World". MyServlet works like JSP to spit out the content in browser. Any idea on why I do not see any compression while I use Servlet URL?
Is it a tool for testing only the resource?
Have you checked out Aspose?
