AyncContext with WebFilter - Glassfish 4.0

I started exploring AyncContext and got down to sort of a demo. I used Servlet 3.0 on Glassfish 4.0, Eclipse Kepler.
Every time I deployed my app I received IllegalStateException since the WebFilter configured did not support AsyncContext.

After the first time, I cleaned and redeployed the app, but the problem persisted. The WebServlet And WebFilter annotations
had BOTH been provided the attribute asyncSupported=true.

Is this a bug with the Glassfish 4.0 AyncContext implementation or is it just me....?

I have appended ALL my code now. Even more infuriating is that in Weblogic 12.1.1 the servlet(without any filter)
doesn't work at all.

Hi All,

There was a oversight on my side, I've figured it out since.

Thanks nonetheless.

I agree. Here's the link:
