Remove all extra white space of outbound pages Tomcat JSP
Posted on 2007-11-30
I am trying to find a good easily implemented way to remove all extra unseen white space in the HTML code being returned by tomcat to the client's computer. So for instance if there was a way to put a layer between tomcat and the and the user that just compresses the file by removing extra white space.
If you view source of say msn you will find no new lines or tabs. they strip all this out to try and reduce the download size of a page. Any suggestions on how to output a compressed file without having to update the source code for each page?
