I am usign a class that extends and implements doFilter() method.

I am getting an error some times. Is it necessary to add the following code ?

httpResponse.setHeader("Cache-Control", "no-cache");
httpResponse.setDateHeader("Expires", 0);
httpResponse.setHeader("Pragma", "No-cache");

Thanks in advance

adding to my above subject...

I could not exactly get the idea and advantage of using Filter/ FilterChain.

Appreciate if any one can explain me also.

Thanks again in advance

perhaps you should be clear in explaining what it is you're trying to achieve and what kind of error you're getting ;-)

The purpose of a Servlet Filter is to intercept a Servlet request and possibly apply certain pre-processing logic modifying or blocking the response if you choose. One use can be auditing of requests (hit counters etc.), another use is in security to check if access to a resource can be granted for example checking to see if the user is logged in etc.

Hi Kevin

The purpose is to use the filter for checking whether the user is logged-on to the website already or not.

Id already, he will navigate else log-on page is presented.

I am getting 500 error when doFilter(req,res) method of FilterChain is called.

Do not understand, why. Some times it works well. Some times gives 500 error.

Appreciate your feed back.

Thanks again...

500 Error means an exception was thrown. What is the exception and it's stack trace?
