Anyone has any experience with this web server's content compression feature? Is it comparable with the compression servlet filter in this article? Any advantage of using the servlet filter instead of the web server's compression.


Here is a paragraph from the web server manual:

Configuring the Server to Compress Content on Demand

You can also configure the Sun ONE Web Server 6.1 to compresses transmission data on the fly. A dynamically generated HTML page doesn't exist until a user asks for it. This is particularly useful for e-commerce-based Web applications and database-driven sites.
