Tomcat Gzip Compression

Enable tomcat gzip compression in you application server can improve performance by reducing network load for some resources.

Edit file /conf/server.xml and add to the HTTP Connector configuration something like this:

compression="on"
compressionMinSize="2048"
noCompressionUserAgents="gozilla, traviata"
compressableMimeType="text/html,text/xml,text/plain,text/json,text/css,text/javascript,application/javascript,application/xml,application/xml+xhtml"

compressionMinSize: If a file is too small, the overhead of compressing it may take longer than sending it uncompressed. You can define a minimum size for which a compression should not be done.
