URLRewriteFilter issues

Hi, I am having a few issues when building my web application - when it is running it works as expected, but when I am building it (in Netbeans) I am getting errors which I am unable to figure out what they mean.

The setup I have got is for all requests /* to be pushed through URLRewriteFilter which only has one rule

Then I have got a welcome file which is set to "" (and the corresponding servlet mappings for that URL are also set up).

When I run the scripts in my browser they both work as expected.

But when I am building the applications in Netbeans I get the error "MonitorFilter::WARNING: the monitor filter must be the first filter in the chain."

From the huge list of errors being produced here, it appears that when I am building the application 'something' is being pushed through the "my-servlet-one" script one after the other which is flagging all of these errors - even though the end result once the application is build is the "my-servlet-two" being run through and displayed in the browser.

Looking through several help files online, this seems to be an issue with the order in which the information is contained either within the URLRewrite.xml file or web.xml file - although I am unsure what the correct order should be as they didn't go that far.

Does all that make sense? If so has anyone any ideas what the possible solution could be here, or anything I could try to aim to debug this issue.


I agree. Here's the link:
