Try to write AuthenticationFilter instead of RequestListener.

Subject: Execution of filter before request listener



Tomcat is executing a Filter before the registered ServletRequestListener



Tomcat 6.0.18, Windows Vista, JDK 1.6.0_10



We have a filter setup to intercept forwards. When an unauthenticated user

comes in, Tomcat forwards them to our login servlet. The filter intercepts

this forward, however the request listener has not been executed.



It seems like the ServletRequestListener should have been executed prior to

the filter.  Is this a bug or part of the specification?
