I know the correct way of enabling gzip HTTP Compression for a WebSphere Application Server is to activate and configure the mod_gzip module in the IBM HTTP Server connected/installed in this environment.
However, our WAS 7 environments don't have the IBM HTTP Server. Can we still use gzip HTTP Compression by enabling it directly in WAS 7? If that is possible, how can we accomplish it?
After talking to some colleagues and some further research, there seems to be a way to enable HTTP Compression directly in the configuration file (XML) of the HTTP connector embedded in WebSphere. Nevertheless, we haven't been able to find the exact file so far. Can anyone validate this information? In a positive case, does anyone know which file we should be looking for?
