Subject RE: Capturing HTML using Tomcat 4
Date Wed, 06 Oct 2004 23:23:40 GMT
Could a filter do the job?

response wrapping always seems scarey to me, but it should be possible to
wrap all the requests for a given URL space (so for example, anything that
might conveniently fall under the /agreement/* URL space), and after your
call to doChain, you can extract and persist a copy of the HTML response.
 
No touching the existing pages, you only need to map the correct URLs (and
there can be multiple ones, of course).
