Recipe 19.4 Changing the Order in Which Filters are Applied to Servlets
Change the order of filter-mapping elements in the deployment descriptor.
The order of filter-mapping elements in web.xml determines the order in which the web container applies the filter to the servlet. Example 19-5 reverses the order of the filter-mapping elements that map two filters to the servlet named requestheaders, compared with Recipe 19.3. The LogFilter is thus applied to the servlet before the AuthenFilter. Any requests for the servlet pass through a chain: LogFilter AuthenFilter requestheaders servlet.
<!-- LogFilter applies to the requestheaders servlet before AuthenFilter --> <filter-mapping> <filter-name>LogFilter</filter-name> <servlet-name>requestheaders</servlet-name> </filter-mapping> <filter-mapping> <filter-name>AuthenFilter</filter-name> <servlet-name>requestheaders</servlet-name> </filter-mapping>
