Class FacesViewsForwardingFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class FacesViewsForwardingFilter
    extends HttpFilter
    This filter makes sure extensionless requests arrive at the FacesServlet using an extension on which that Servlet is mapped, and that non-extensionless requests are handled according to a set preference.

    A filter like this is needed for extensionless requests, since the FacesServlet does not take into account any other mapping than prefix- and extension (suffix) mapping.

    For a guide on FacesViews, please see the package summary.
