yes,A is correct.

A filter acts as an interceptor to incoming HttpRequests.   You declare the filter in the web.xml and then also provide entries there which say which url patterns the filter will be applied to.

Common uses :

- SecurityFilter (ensure the request is coming from an authenticated user, if not redirect to login page)
- CompressionFilter (buffer the response, and encode with gzip compression)
- Etc.
