D10098 - JSR340 Filter in Agent

This tutorial will describe the usage of @WebFilter which will belong to JSR340 to implement Chain of Responsibility pattern in zero system, because there are some conflicts between Servlet and Vert.x, in zero system it won’t implement @WebServlet annotation but @WebFilter/@WebListener instead.

Demo projects:

In zero system there are two places to programming: Sender/Consumer, in this situation we’ll introduce both modes in our tutorials.

1. Source Code

1.1. Actor

At first we’ll implement an actor in our project that has been introduced before.

package up.god.micro.filter;

import io.vertx.core.json.JsonObject;
import io.vertx.up.annotations.EndPoint;


public class FilterAgent {

    public JsonObject filter(@BodyParam final JsonObject data,
                             @ContextParam("key") final String filtered) {
        return new JsonObject().put("filter", filtered)

1.2. Filter

Then you can write the filter as following:

package up.god.micro.filter;

import io.vertx.core.VertxException;
import io.vertx.core.http.HttpServerRequest;
import io.vertx.core.http.HttpServerResponse;
import io.vertx.up.uca.web.filter.HttpFilter;

import javax.servlet.annotation.WebFilter;

public class FirstFilter extends HttpFilter {

    public void doFilter(final HttpServerRequest request,
                         final HttpServerResponse response)
            throws IOException, VertxException {
        System.out.println("First Filter");
        this.put("key", "First Filter");

Here are some points that you should be careful:

2. Testing

URL : http://localhost:6084/api/jsr340/agent

Method: POST

Request :


Response :

    "data": {
        "filter": "First Filter",
        "username": "Lang"

From above demo you can see that we have got the data in actor that had been put in filter component.

3. Summary

Current tutorial described the filter usage that belong to JSR340, the filter will be triggered automatically if the uri is matching. You can do anythings in filter such as data conversion, request modification or reject current restful request.
