The only way it can execute multiple times is when the authorized flag is false and is redirected to the login page.
Otheriwse there is no way it can execute multiple times.

Once the user is authenticated set the token.
Next when the user comes request will be with the user token.

What issue your are getting with this.
Check the path definition, could be a path issue.

Which URL pattern you are talking about.

I am saying you to check the img source attibute value in your JSP/HTML.

And look where exactly the css file is located.

And Exception filter for what?
