Interface Handler

  • public interface Handler
    Handler which is responsible for processing request and response. This type is introduced to provide a unified way for injecting various logic on verification of requests sent via HTTP. Handlers are called before servlet who will receive request, thus they can not mutate servlet response, but they can generate its own response depending on actual needs. Pay attention to error handling - as a proper executions might report exceptions, but fault path handled in method must remain silent and take care of all issues which might occur while handling error.
