What is a filter in JSP?

We can define filters in JSP to intercept requests from a client or to change response from a server.

Filter is a Java class that is defined in the deployment descriptor of web.xml of an application. The JSP container reads filter from web.xml and applies a filter as per the URL pattern associated with the filter.

JSP Engine loads all the filters in when we start the server.
