Since hooks are the preferred plugin type for customizing Liferay’s core features, the Liferay team is happy to keep providing you new hooks. This section is a placeholder for hooks that are available in Liferay Portal 6.1, but aren’t yet fully documented.
Servlet filter hook: Servlet filters allow you to pre-process requests going
to a servlet and post-process responses coming from a servlet. As server
requests are received that match URL patterns or match servlet names specified
in your servlet filter mappings, your specified servlet filters are applied.
servlet-filter-mapping have been added to
liferay-hook.xml so you can configure your servlet filters. For a working
example, see the
in the Plugin SDK.
