We are seeing an increasing number of issues caused by poorly written applications writing invalid and/or inappropriate HTTP headers. A common example is a simple HTTP proxy that blindly copies all the HTTP response headers it receives. When this includes per-hop headers such as Transfer-Encoding breakage often follows. The most recent discussion on this topic was on the dev list: http://markmail.org/thread/3ajgz6yjgski5svz This discussion concluded a mod_headers like filter would address this issue and be a useful addition to Tomcat. This enhancement request is to implement such a Filter. The expectation is that it would be back-ported to 9.0.x and 8.5.x.
