I am now using Sean Owen's Filter, instead of Jayson Falkner's filter. My filter mapping is:

<filter-mapping> <filter-name>CompressingFilter</filter-name> <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> </filter-mapping>

It works fine without throwing any Exception within Struts framework.

However, if I use /*.do, or /*.jsp, or /*.htm, it does not invoke the filter. It invokes the filter (obviously, for every page) only with /* url-pattern.

Question to Sean: Do you know why?

My Servlet does redirection to another JSP and Sean's filter is working fine within my Struts environment.

Comment to Sean: You have many assert statements like: assert config != null; You might consider removing those lines from published code. Otherwise, users have to comment those lines for the code to compile.
