[WLS 10.3.3]Servlet Filters Not Invoked with <FolderName> * in the url-pattern (Doc ID 1272838.1)

Last updated on APRIL 15, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3.3 and later   [Release: and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When you try to deploy a webapp with url-pattern like "/foo/chi* on WLS 10.3.3, Servlet filter does not get applied i.e. The filter associated with this url-pattern does not get invoked.

i.e.: Lets assume you have a jsp page (index.jsp) within folder foo\chi\index.jsp
MyFilter does not get invoked when you access the index.jsp using below url

Sample snippet from web.xml

However such url-pattern works fine with OC4J Container and the filter is invoked.


Users migrating from OC4J Container to Weblogic Server may encounter this issue.
