I am a java/jsp/servlet programmer, trying to write something which you might call a WebTracker or WebMonitor.
My problem is: "I want to create a kind of a web proxy so that EACH url requested by a user passes through my web application, and that I am able to save that url somewhere."
Doing so doesn't cover all the cases. For example I can't post data for the users and there are other problems of the like. The web is SO heterogenous. I think you have got the problem.
What my doubt is: "There are so many anonymous proxy servers on the web which are completely web-based and allow almost any kind of activity like submitting web-forms, images retreival and all kinds of stuff. Check out the following:
I doubt there must be some kind of configuration possible in Apache Tomcat (which is my web-server) which will allow me to track my users. I don't think that anonymous proxy servers parse and alter HTML streams. There must be something which I don't know."
do you have a solution of any kind.. any ideas? Please help Thanx in advance
