Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4.0.11 NSAPI Developer's Guide

NSAPI Filter Interface

Sun Java System Web Proxy Server 4 extends NSAPI by introducing a new filter interface that complements the existing Server Application Function (SAF) interface. You use filters to intercept and possibly modify data sent to and from the server. The server communicates with a filter by calling the filter’s filter methods. Each filter implements one or more filter methods. A filter method is a C function that performs a specific operation, such as processing data sent by the server.
