But this is only for static resources, isn't it?

    I don't see why this would be only for static resources.. see http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/config/coyote.html (attribute "compression")

      You are right, it says that "If the content-length is not known and compression is set to "on" or more aggressive, the output will also be compressed.". Since the content-length should always be known for static resources, I assume they are indeed talking about content generated by servlets.
