Subject filter and authentication
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2002 14:58:03 GMT

To our knowledge, a request for a servlet is followed by an authentication
done by the web server (for example Base / Form authentication etc.).
We are interested in using the filtering mechanism (javax.servlet.Filter).

Our question is: What happens before what when a request is made by a
client: Filtering and then authentication, or authentication an then

a) client -> filter -> authentication -> servlet
b) client -> authentication -> filter -> servlet

Thanks in advance,
Ilana and Natalie
