I have heard that IIS has the feature to pre-compress static files (based on specific file types or url patterns).
Meaning if a client requests a static file (and have the ACCEPT-ENCODING header set to gzip, deflate), and the url matches a specific configurable pattern, IIS will look, if
that static files lies somewhere in compressed form. If not, the client will receive back the answer in an un-compressed way but in parallel IIS will
compress the file and put it somewhere in a cache. Next time a client will request that static file, IIS will serve it in compressed way from that cache.
Is there any comparable feature inside Tomcat 5 or 6.
Thanks for your help in advance
