    Request Header

    Alex Alek Newbie

      I have implemented a filter to gzip the response, but the "Accept-Encoding" header is never present in the request... Is is possible that JBoss does something to the request and takes this header away before it reaches the filter? I am using JBoss 3.2.6

      Thanks

          This is a print out of what comes in the request but what happened to "Accept-Encoding"? It seems to be overriden by "--------:----" Any ideas?

            Works fine for me. I threw a snoop.jsp page into the jmx-console.war, enabled the RequestDumperValve and printed out the request.getHeader("Accept-Encoding") header value as seen in the jsp page:


            console output of RequestDumperValve:

              This is not really a bug. The problem here is introduced, for example in my case, by a personal fire wall running on my client machine. Somehow, when my personal fire wall ( Norton ) is enabled, it removes the "accept-encoding: gzip,deflate" headers only, as you can see in my reply above.
              So once again, it seems that I am at the mercy of the client...
