Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Guide for JBoss Application Server 4.0

J2EE Agent Support for Custom Response Headers

Starting with this release, J2EE agents provide support for custom response headers. The agent can be configured so that custom response headers are set on every request. Such headers are defined statically in the J2EE agent configuration file and are honored on all enforced web resources as identified by the agent.

Benefit - Support for Custom Response Headers: The benefit of this feature is that it enables instructions, by way of custom response headers, to be sent to a client or any intermediate entity between the agent-protected server and the client browser. For example, a custom response header could be sent instructing an intermediate proxy server not to cache server responses to client requests.
