A lot of existing bundles need to register Servlet Filters to work correctly. Filters are of course supported on Glassfish, but because they are not part of the OSGi/HTTP Service specification, hence not available via an OSGi API.
These bundles use proprietary extensions to OSGi/HTTP Service while running in different environments. In order to support such bundles on GlassFish, there is a need to implement a similar feature on GF somehow.
