1. Filters (1 messages)

    Hi all,

    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.

    Yes it can. This may be done to avoid having the filter deal with the request.
