> This patch contains a pair of interceptors I wrote to provide support for proper GZIP
compression of request and response messages.  I originally started from the configuration_interceptor
sample but the code has evolved quite a long way from there now.
> There are two separate interceptors.  GZIPInInterceptor looks in the PROTOCOL_HEADERS
for a Content-Encoding of "gzip", and if found it wraps the message's InputStream with a GZIPInputStream
to uncompress the payload.  It restores the original input stream at the end of processing
(failure to do that originally left me with lots of stale HTTP connections).
> GZIPOutInterceptor applies gzip compression to outgoing messages whose payload is larger
than a configurable threshold (default 1kB), and sets their Content-Encoding in the PROTOCOL_HEADERS
to "gzip".  Smaller messages are not compressed as it's probably not worth the overhead.
> As currently written, these interceptors are only for use on the client side (compress
the request, uncompress the response).  In my services I implement the server-side compression
outside of CXF via a servlet filter (, but
if you think it would be useful I can modify the interceptors to support this too - the "in"
interceptor should work as-is, the "out" one would have to be made conditional on the Accept-Encoding
header supplied in the client request.
