The Servlet 2.3 spec. is somewhat ambiguous regarding the availability of certain functionalities in a filter.doFilter() method.
The spec. doesn't specifically disallow the use of dispatcher in the doFilter() method. (The context is clearly available and the filter can access RequestDispatcher.)
So the question is precisely this:
Can a filter use the requestDispatcher (obtained either from the context or the request objects) to redirect requests, or not?
Thank you very much in advance.
