Subject Re: Is it possible to add header values to the request (not the respo nse)?
Date Wed, 16 Jul 2003 11:34:29 GMT
You can do this via a Filter and HttpServletRequestWrapper, where your 
imlpementation of HttpServletRequestWrapper will extend the needed getHeader 
methods to send the additional stuff you need.
