Note that <url-pattern>*</url-pattern> is out-of spec: that will
probably look for a request for the exact URL http://host/context/*,
which probably isn't what you want. If you want to intercept all
requests, you'll need <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>. Using "/" should
also work to intercept everything, but the spec actually says that "/"
specifies "the default servlet for the application" and so I'm not sure
if a Filter can reliably be given that URL mapping.

.* works pretty much the same in all regular expression variants. What
have you tried?
