The following problem occurred on WAS7 and 8.
I have this filter mapping in the web.xml of my web application:
It works good for most pages, but the problem is that the filter FilterXY is applied two times in a row for the page /pages/init/home.jsf, because it matches moth url patterns.
An important thing to note is that when the application runs on JBoss, there is no problem, the filter is applies only once.
Is it normal, that if a URL is matched against more url patterns in the filter mapping, the linked filter is applied as many times as there is matches?
I have been searching for an answer for a long time, but to no conclusion. Any information would be very appreciated.
Thank you very much for your help.
