This class does not implement the javax.servlet.Filter interface and
thus it cannot be used in a web application.

It is just an internal component of HTTP connectors, that is used when
you enable gzip compression on the connector,

There is "compressionFilters.CompressionFilter" class in the examples
webapp though, that can be used as a Filter.
