This module allows request bodies to be reflected back to the client, in the process passing the request through the output filter stack. A suitably configured chain of filters can be used to transform the request into a response. This module can be used to turn an output filter into an HTTP service.

Pass the request body through the DEFLATE filter to compress the body. This request requires a Content-Encoding request header containing "gzip" for the filter to return compressed data.
<Location /compress>
    SetHandler reflector
    SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
</Location>
Image downsampling service
Pass the request body through an image downsampling filter, and reflect the results to the caller.
<Location /downsample>
    SetHandler reflector
    SetOutputFilter DOWNSAMPLE
</Location>
