I am working on filter to protect the webapplication. My filter intercepts the call does the authenticationa and autorization with another application by redirecting. Before redirecting it put the request parameter in the DB and finally after successful authorization recreates the original request using the parameters from DB and replays the request.
My problem is with multipart data. To solve this i have craeted a request wrapper to store the input stream in to byte array and keep the byte array in session and do other redirection. But finally i take the byte array from session and pass it to the request wrapper and pass the request wrapper to filter chain for the servlet to get the data. But in servlet if i use this request wrapper with apache file upload api, i dont get any form fields or files though the input stream has the file and form field in the content.
I tried to put the whole request wrapper in session and used the session request wrapper to pass in the filter chain finally. But the same problem. Does any one have any clue what is worng here.
