Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Filters are not portable ?!?!!

  1. Filters are not portable ?!?!! (1 messages)

    A person said to me that Filters (Servlet 2.3) are not portable, he said that some containers have no support for them. I´m not agreed, since Filter is part of the Servlet API and is so much used to cache, debugging, authentication and so on ...
    Somebody knows about this? There is a container that not supports the Filter API ?
    Thanks ....
  2. Filters are not portable ?!?!![ Go to top ]

    There are plenty of organizations that are still using older, Servlet 2.2- servers (like Websphere 4), so filters won't work on those servers.

    I don't know of any Servlet 2.3 compliant server that does not support filters, though. In fact, by definition, it can't be Servlet 2.3 compliant if it doesn't.
