HTTP parser

Overview

The HTTP Parser filter parses the HTTP request headers and body. As such, it acts as a barrier in the policy to guarantee that the entire content has been received before any other filters are invoked. It requires the content.body attribute.

The HTTP Parser filter forces the server to do store-and-forward routing instead of the default cut-through routing, where the request is only parsed on-demand. For example, you can use this filter as a simple test to ensure that the message is XML.
