I'm playing around with the GWT pre-compress feature, such that .html, .js, and .css are all precompressed with a .gz version beside the original version (http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/wiki/PrecompressLinker).
However, when testing with tools like pagespeed, it does not appear that the precompressed content is sent (ie9, firefox 16, chrome). Admittadely, I'm using an older jboss (jboss 4.2), but I only see items that appear to dynamically compress content versus serve pre-compressed content.
Edit: the compressed content is within a .WAR (within a .EAR in my scenario).
Is this normal/expected behavior with jboss?
