do filter inline and callback

So dofilter is apparently both a container callback and an inline method.

Correct me if i'm wrong but does this mean it's called by the container and itself by doing chain.dofilter?

Hi Paul,

Yes, the first filter is called by the container because a filter is configured in the web.xml, all the following filters in the chain are called from your doFilter() method's chain.doFilter().

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
