Thanks to the latest example that have been provided I really see what it meant. However, I do have another question, where does one setup which filters should be run? In the quote above, different scenarios are laid out where different filters would need to run depending on the page/section requirements. How are you configuring what should be in the FilterChain?

The example InterceptingFilter has already paid off dividends in the progress of my project, thank you very much.
