Subject Re: [MVC] best practice: Filter or Controller?
Date Tue, 22 Oct 2002 11:06:51 GMT
If your not knee deep in code yet - see struts. An MVC framework that 
does exactly this stuff.

And it does it as a controller Servlet (no filters).

Struts has its own user and dev mailing lists where you can get more help.
