Subject RE: Valves being converted to Filters?

So is there still going to be an API to plug into the tomcat internals and do things that the
servlet API does not support?

   Hello Henri,

   I was referring to public information such as :
- Google Summer Of Code 2009, project "Convert current Tomcat valves
to Servlet Filters" :
and the various associated emails on Tomcat dev mailing list.
- Mark Thomas post on Tomcat users mailing list : "...47330 is on the
todo list but my current plan is to implement it as a Filter rather
than a valve. " (1)

   However, my understanding is not that pluggable 'interceptors' will
be removed from the container, just that the Valve API will be
replaced with a Filter API. I feel interfaces (HttpServletRequest &
HttpServletResponse) will be much more easy to manipulate than the
current implementations (Request, Response).

   Hopr this clarifies my message,
