I'm using Websphere 6.0.2.3 and I need the server to compress HTML responses using gzip and set this response header:

Content-Encoding: gzip

I have 30 WAR's and I don't want to configure a servlet filter in each WAR.

One alternative to servlet filters is to use mod_deflate module
in the HTTP server.

Is anybody using mod_deflate in IBM HTTP Server 6.0.x ?

Addendum: All of my web applications are using HTTPS (SSL). I am planning to use HTTP compression in conjunction with HTTPS.

Is anybody using mod_deflate and HTTPS together?
