1 second guide - enabling gzip compression in Apache Tomcat

Published Wed, 17 Mar 2010 • 1 comments

This is one of those note-to-self posts.

Add the following attributes to the <Connector> in Tomcat's server.xml to enable gzip compression of responses:

   compression="on" compressionMinSize="2048"
   compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/csv,text/css,text/javascript"

Done.
