Sorry for not being clear. You are correct. I am infact mapping /rest/ to my
module in the config file. What I meant in my earlier mail was that once a
request ends up in my module, the accepted behavior of my module is to
process the data and then return a response to the client. no other
filter/module is supposed to do any further processing of that data.
