Hi, Anybody tried GZIP compression of response when using Struts & Tiles in an application. Struts is OK but when I am using JSPs with tiles, I am not getting any compressed response back. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, sai
I have heard that GZipFilter has problems when the app server applies it more than once to a request -- for example, when there are server-side forwards. This definitely happens when using Tiles.
If I may be so bold as to plug my own work, I have created an open-source compression filter that is faster, cleaner and more comprehensive than GZipFilter. It does not suffer from the problem described above. If you are still having trouble, maybe you can give my filter a try?
Thanks for giving me the suggestions on this. I found the problem to be with browser IE6.0 SP1 on WindowsXP. Windows2000 works fine. Even on XPwith SP2, most of the pages are working fine except one case where I would generate Excel spreadsheet from xml content. This too works fine in Windows2000 but not on XP (with SP2 also). I have read somewhere that IE6.0 on XP is having problems with excel content. I hope this is a problem with browser that Microsoft has to work on.
