Class GZIPInInterceptor

  extended by org.apache.cxf.phase.AbstractPhaseInterceptor<Message>
      extended by org.apache.cxf.transport.common.gzip.GZIPInInterceptor
All Implemented Interfaces:
Interceptor<Message>, PhaseInterceptor<Message>

public class GZIPInInterceptor
extends AbstractPhaseInterceptor<Message>

CXF interceptor that uncompresses those incoming messages that have "gzip" content-encoding. An instance of this class should be added as an in and inFault interceptor on clients that need to talk to a service that returns gzipped responses or on services that want to accept gzipped requests. For clients, you probably also want to use HTTPClientPolicy.setAcceptEncoding(java.lang.String) to let the server know you can handle compressed responses. To compress outgoing messages, see GZIPOutInterceptor. This class was originally based on one of the CXF samples (configuration_interceptor).

public void handleMessage(Message message)
                   throws Fault
Description copied from interface: Interceptor
Intercepts a message. Interceptors should NOT invoke handleMessage or handleFault on the next interceptor - the interceptor chain will take care of this.
