Subject Re: tracking user activities: how to ignore action chaining (or server side forward)
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2003 14:54:40 GMT
My company using Websphere 4.0.5, and it only supports
servlet 2.2. Does filter only operate on the original
client request for servlet 2.2 also? Can filter works
well with Struts actionservlet?

Thanks.
David
