Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Administrator's Configuration File Reference


The Output directive selects filters that will process outgoing response data generated by the Service step. The Output directive allows you to invoke the insert-filter SAF to install NSAPI filters that process outgoing data. NSAPI filters enable a function to intercept and potentially modify the content presented to or generated by another function. Output directives are executed when the server or a plug-in first attempts to write entity body data from the client. The Output directives are executed once per request.

The order of Input fn="insert-filter" and Output fn="insert-filter" directives in obj.conf is important if two or more filters are defined to occupy the same location in the filter stack. Filters that were inserted later will appear higher than filters that were inserted earlier.
