Subject [Bug 62072] New: Add support for request compression
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2018 17:56:32 GMT

            Bug ID: 62072
           Summary: Add support for request compression
           Product: Tomcat 9
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
  Target Milestone: -----

Tomcat does not currently support compression of requests sent to the server,
i.e. requests with a Content-Encoding header.

It is a bit unclear from the specification if this is a part of HTTP but it is
mentioned that status code 415 should be sent if a request is sent in an
unknown encoding:

Other servers such as Undertow (
have added it and Jetty is about to add it

It would be great if Tomcat could add the same support.
