public interface HttpFilter extends Ordered

A interface for classes that can intercept and filter HttpRequest instances and can either proceed with the request or return a modified result.

Implementations are passed a FilterChain where the last entry in the chain in the action to be executed that returns a Publisher that emits an HttpResponse

Each filter implements Ordered and can return an order to increase or decrease the priority of the filter

To modify the request filters can either wrap it (using HttpRequestWrapper or pass it along the chain as is

The response can be altered by returning an alternative Publisher that emits a HttpResponse or by altering the publisher returned by FilterChain.proceed(HttpRequest)
