Subject [Bug 62072] New: Add support for request compression
Date Thu, 01 Feb 2018 17:56:32 GMT
https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=62072

            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
          Assignee: dev@tomcat.apache.org
          Reporter: rafael.wth@gmail.com
  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: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-6.5.13

Other servers such as Undertow (https://issues.jboss.org/browse/UNDERTOW-920)
have added it and Jetty is about to add it
(https://github.com/eclipse/jetty.project/issues/382).

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