Servlet Filters

This sample shows how to use Servlet Filters and new Jetty Handlers within your Pedestal services. The sample specifically applies a gzip filter to the service configuration of Jetty. To check on the encoding of the server's response, hit with curl, requesting compression:

curl -vv --compressed http://localhost:8080

You'll observe in the return headers:

Content-Encoding: gzip

Getting Started

  1. Start the application: lein run-dev *
  2. Go to localhost:8080 to see: Hello World!
  3. Read your app's source code at src/gzip/service.clj. Explore the docs of functions that define routes and responses.
  4. Run your app's tests with lein test. Read the tests at test/gzip/service_test.clj.
  5. Learn more! See the Links section below.

* lein run-dev automatically detects code changes. Alternatively, you can run in production mode with lein run.


To configure logging see config/logback.xml. By default, the app logs to stdout and logs/. To learn more about configuring Logback, read its documentation.
